  • Intel Gigabit Ethernet controller
    Industry-leading, energy-efficient design for next-generation Gigabit performance and multi-core processors.
  • Low-profile
    Enables higher bandwidth and throughput from standard and low-profile PCI Express slots and servers.
  • iSCSI remote boot support
    Provides centralized storage area network (SAN) management at a lower cost than competing iSCSI solutions.
  • 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.
  • Multi-port design
    Enables dual- or quad-port operation in almost any PCI Express server slot, except x1 slots.
  • RoHS-compliant
    Compliant with the European Union directive 2002/95/EC to reduce the use of hazardous materials.
  • Intel PROSet Utility for Microsoft Windows Device Manager
    Provides point-and-click management of individual adapters, advanced adapter features, connection teaming, and virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration.
  • Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDQ)
    Off loads the data sorting functionality from the Hypervisor to the network silicon, thereby improving data throughput and CPU usage.
  • PC-SIG SR-IOV implementation
    Provides an implementation of the PCI-SIG standard for I/O virtualization. The physical configuration of each port is divided into multiport virtual ports. Each virtual port is assigned to an individual virtual machine directly by bypassing the virtual switch in the Hypervisor, resulting in near native performance.

The Intel Gigabit ET2 Quad Port Server Adapters showcase the latest virtualization technology called Intel Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (Intel VT for Connectivity). Intel VT for Connectivity is a suite of hardware assists that improve overall system performance by lowering the I/O overhead in a virtualized environment. This optimizes CPU usage, reduces system latency, and improves I/O through-put. Intel VT for Connectivity includes: Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq) and Intel I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel I/OAT).
