Combine the right mix of traditional IT, private cloud, and public cloud to achieve optimal workload placement.
What if you could accelerate IT services, increase data center efficiency and double your bandwidth without doubling your costs and complexity? The HPE FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 650FLB Adapter is installed in the FlexibleLOM socket prior to installing additional Mezzanine adapters. The adapter provides Tunnel Offload for efficient overlay networking to increase VM migration flexibility and network scale with minimal impact to server performance. Traditional layer 2 networks limit mobility and scale of virtualized and multi-tenant workloads. When connected to HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Modules, the FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 650FLB Adapter provides 20GbE performance and it can also provide 10GbE performance when connected to HPE 6125XLG Ethernet Blade Switch.
Lower Costs and Deliver Faster Services by Converging FCoE with LAN Traffic on a Single Wire
The HPE FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 650FLB Adapter is specifically designed for HPE ProLiant Server Blade. It is a FlexibleLOM card which cost-effectively doubles server I/O bandwidth and avoids bottlenecks both today and in the future.
Simplify the infrastructure by reducing 50% of the hardware (compared to 10 Gb adapters), lowering operational costs and acquisition costs.
The industry’s first product to converge FCoE with LAN traffic on a single Ethernet wire.
Combining both the FlexibleLOM and Mezzanine adapters in a single HPE BladeSystem ProLiant Server can provide up to 80 Gb/s of converged bi-directional Ethernet bandwidth.
Improve Network Virtualization Performance and Scale with Tunnel Offload
The HPE FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 650FLB Adapter uses Tunnel Offload and a 2x bandwidth improvement to take full advantage of overlay networking.
Increase I/O throughput up to 129%, and reduce CPU and power consumption by 46% and 122% respectively using Tunnel Offload.1
Increase the scale of VMs/VLANs beyond the traditional limit of 4,096.
Simplify network services provisioning.
Provide up to a 4x improvement in small packet performance.1
