The Emulex OCe14000B family of Ethernet network adapters provides high performance 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) and 40GbE connectivity delivering multiple benefits for the enterprise cloud, including:Increasing data center IT agility and scalability through deployment of a secure multi-tenant cloudOptimizing server hardware utilization by scaling high density virtualizationDelivering user-controlled bandwidth partitioning across workloads and management servicesChoice of single-port, dual-port, or quad-port 10GbE SFP+ or single-port 40GbE QSFP+ PCIe adaptersThe OCe14000B family of 10Gb and 40Gb Ethernet network adapters is designed for the high bandwidth and scalability demands of enterprise applications with more scalable virtualization including support for RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCEv2) fabric, enhanced Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), Network Interface Card (NIC) port partitioning, and cloud optimization using overlay network technology.
The 40GbE QSFP+ adapter supports an optical 40GBASE-SR4 connection or copper 40GBASE-CR4 connection which can be re-configured to support 4-ports of 10GBASE-CR for use with a QSFP+ to quad breakout SFP+ direct attach cable (DAC) or Active Optical Cable (AOC).
Emulex Virtual Network Exceleration (VNeX™) overlay network offloads for multi-tenant cloud networkingScaling existing technologies for private or public multi-tenant infrastructures requires networking solutions that can enable virtual machine (VM)-to-VM communication and virtual workload migration across Layer 2 and Layer 3 boundaries without impacting connectivity or performance.
At the same time, these solutions need to ensure isolation and security for thousands or millions of tenant networks. However, with existing technology, the available 4094 VLAN IDs are insufficient to isolate and secure each tenant in a private or hybrid cloud data center.
Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN), supported by VMware and Linux and Network Virtualization using Generic Routing Encapsulation (NVGRE), supported by Microsoft are next-generation overlay networking solutions that address these requirements. These solutions are a frame-in-frame data packet encapsulation scheme enabling the creation of virtualized Layer 2 subnets that can span physical L3 IP networks. Traffic from each VM is tunneled to a specific virtual network; the packets are then routed transparently over the existing physical infrastructure.
Emulex VNeX offload technology powered by a multi-core adapter ASIC engine accelerates the performance of network virtualization by preserving legacy stateless TCP offloads and scaling methods on encapsulated packets, providing full native network performance in a virtual network environment.
Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) supportThe OCe14000B adapters leverage RoCEv2 enabling server to server data movement directly between application memory without any CPU involvement providing high throughput and data acceleration on a standard Ethernet fabric without the need for any specialized infrastructure or management. The OCe14000B adapters support the new Infiniband Trade Association (IBTA) RoCEv2 specification for Layer 3 routing.
Optimized host virtualization density with SR-IOV supportSR-IOV optimizes I/O for VMs, enabling higher host server virtualization ratios to deliver maximum server return on investment (ROI). SR-IOV provides a more cost-effective solution than multiple, physical adapter ports.
SR-IOV enables multiple VMs to directly access the OCe14000B’s I/O resources, thus allowing VM networkingI/O to bypass the host and take a path directly between the VM and the adapter, eliminating redundant I/O processing in the hypervisor. This, in turn, allows higher I/O performance, lower CPU utilization and significantly reduced latency as compared to the alternative of software-emulated Network Interface Card (NIC) devices that are implemented in the hypervisor.
Available quad-port 10GbE SFP+ modelUse cases such as Content Delivery Network (CDN) and hosting providers have standardized on 10GbE and are often looking for more bandwidth per server for the services they provide.
The Emulex quad-port 10GbE model (OCe14104B-01) delivers 40GbE full-duplex bandwidth using a single PCIe slot. An additional benefit of this configuration is utilization of existing 10GbE SFP+ switch connections versus buying new 40GbE QSFP+ switches.
Simplified management with OneCommand® Manager applicationThe OneCommand Manager application provides centralized management of Emulex OneConnect Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) and LightPulse® Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) throughout the data center from a single management console. The OneCommand Manager application provides a graphical user interface (GUI) and a scriptable command line user interface (CLI). OneCommand Manager for VMware is fully integrated with VMware vCenter to simplify management for virtual server deployments.
Fourth generation platform delivers enterprise-class reliability and performanceLeveraging generations of advanced, field-proven controller and adapter technology, OCe14000B adapters meet the robust interoperability and reliability requirements of enterprise and scaleout data centers.
Optimized bandwidth allocation with Universal Multi-Channel port partitioning (also known as network partitioning, NPAR)Emulex Universal Multi-Channel (UMC) is ideal for virtualized server environments because bandwidth allocation can be optimized to support virtual machine migration, management and I/O intensive applications. UMC allows multiple Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) physical functions to be created on each adapter port. Each adapter can be configured with up to sixteen functions.
The key benefits of deploying Emulex UMC technology include:
Lower total cost of ownership (TCO)Consolidates multiple 1GbE adapters, associated cables and switch portsHigher VM workload bandwidth allocation to drive higher VM density on host serversLower per-Gb bandwidth cost compared to deploying multiple 1GbE adaptersOptimized I/O utilizationGranular bandwidth provisioning minimizes wasted idle bandwidth and waste of dedicated 1GbE adaptersEnables Service Level Agreement (SLA) based provisioning and deploymentSimplified deploymentUMC is not dependent on specialized OS supportWorks with any 10GbE or 40GbE switchUMC is ideal for virtualized server environments because bandwidth allocation can be optimized to support I/O intensive applications, virtual machine migration, and management functions.
