Product Overview Energy-Efficient, Next-Generation 10 Gigabit Performance

10 Gigabit Ethernet has moved past the early adoption stage and is rapidly becoming mainstay for backbones within enterprise and service provider networks. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as High Performance Computing (HPC), database clusters, and video-on-demand are driving the need for 10 Gigabit connections.
Based on the Intel® 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, the next-generation Intel® 10 Gigabit XF Server Adapters are designed to meet the throughput and latency requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications, while offering a very low power envelope for energy efficiency. Ideal for slot-constrained environments, the Intel® 10 Gigabit XF Dual Port Server Adapter provides a simplified alternative to multiple 1 Gbps
server adapters.

Please note - this is the single port edition : EXPX9501AFXSR (Single-Port SR) Features Intel 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller
Industry-leading, energy-efficient design for next-generation 10 Gigabit performance and multi-core processors

Enables higher bandwidth and throughput from standard and low-profile PCIe slots and servers

Load balancing on multiple CPUs
Increases performance on multi-processor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux*

Intel I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel I/OAT)
Accelerates I/O with higher throughput and lower CPU utilization by offloading processing overhead

iSCSI remote boot support
Provides centralized storage area network (SAN) management at a lower cost than competing iSCSI solutions

MSI-X support
Minimizes the overhead of interrupts
Allows load balancing of interrupt handling between different cores/CPUs
Virtual Machine Device queues1 (VMDq)
Allows the efficient routing of packets to the correct target machine in a virtualized environment using multiple hardware queues
Ensures transmit fairness and prevents head-of-line blocking

Low latency
Ability to toggle between the interrupt aggregation and non-aggregation mode based on the type of data being transferred
Optimized queues: 32 transmit (Tx) and 64 receive (Rx) per port
Network packet handling without waiting or buffer overflow
Efficient packet prioritization

Compatible with x4,5 x8, and x16 standard and low-profile PCI Express* slots
Allows dual-port operation in almost any PCI Express server slot, except x1 slots, and allows each PCI Express slot port to operate without interfering with the other

Support for most network operating systems (NOS)
Enables widespread deployment

Remote management support
Reduces support costs with remote management based on industry-wide standards

10GBASE-SR on multi-mode fiber (SR versions)
Ensures compatibility with fiber-optic cable lengths up to 300 meters
RoHS compliant,3 lead-free2 technology
Compliant with the European Union directive (effective as of July 2006) to reduce the use of hazardous materials

IntelR PROSet Utility for Windows* Device Manager
Provides point-and-click power over individual adapters, advanced adapter features, connection teaming, and virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.
