Combine the right mix of traditional IT, private cloud, and public cloud to achieve optimal workload placement.
What if you could double your bandwidth, simplify management and reduce compute I/O costs and complexity? The HPE Synergy 3820C 10/20Gb Converged Network Adapter is a key element in HPE composable fabric connecting pools of compute resources to networks with reliable, high-performing converged 10 or 20 Gb Ethernet connectivity. With Flex-20 Technology, the Synergy 3820C converges Ethernet and FCoE onto a single connection simplifying hardware and reducing costs. Each adapter replaces a 10 Gb NIC and 8 Gb Fibre Channel HBA simplifying I/O hardware by 50% and reducing costs up to 60%. The Synergy 3820C is an ideal choice for any virtualized or converged data center. Provisioning and updating Synergy 3820C are simple, reliable and fast using HPE Synergy’s software-defined template-driven, frictionless operation. The HPE Synergy Composer automatically delivers proper firmware and driver coordination including staging updates for execution to avoid workload disruption.
The HPE Synergy 3820C 10/20Gb Converged Network Adapter delivers flexibility to compose multiple network flows including Ethernet and FCoE or iSCSI within each connection.
Flex-20 Technology allows you to fine tune bandwidth for up to four partitioned FlexNIC’s and FlexHBA’s to optimize connectivity for different application needs.
A single mezzanine form factor provides flexible network and storage I/O for any HPE Synergy Compute Module.
The HPE Synergy 3820C 10/20Gb Converged Network Adapter provides 2X bandwidth improvement to remove compute I/O bottlenecks improving performance and accelerating virtualized workloads.
Each 20 Gb adapter provides CPU improvement for Synergy Compute Modules over two 10 Gb adapters with hardware acceleration and stateless TCP/IP offload technology.
Provides up to 80 Gb/s of converged bi-directional Ethernet bandwidth.
The HPE Synergy 3820C 10/20Gb Converged Network Adapter consolidates server I/O connections reducing NIC/HBA adapter, cabling and switch port requirements.
Provisions and updates all adapters quickly and consistently using the HPE Synergy template-driven server profiles.
Orchestrates reliable adapter firmware updates with an entire HPE Synergy infrastructure from a single tool, HPE Synergy Composer.
