Qlogic 8200 Dual Port 10GbE SFP+ VFA for Lenovo System x


90Y4600 (Lenovo / Server Accessory)

SKU: 90Y4600 Category:


The QLogic 8200 Virtual Fabric Adapter Family for System x consists of 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters available in either a standard PCIe adapter form factor or a mezzanine form factor. Both adapters are high-performance Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) based on the QLogic 8200 design. The adapters offer upgrades to full hardware offload for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI processing. The adapters connect to SFP+ Multimode Fiber SR optical modules and direct-attach copper (DAC) cables.

The QLogic 8200 VFA family adapters have the following features:

  • 10 Gbps per-port maximum throughput for high bandwidth storage (SAN) and networking (LAN) traffic.
  • Based on the QLogic 8200 ASIC.
  • Support for SFP+ transceivers and DAC cables.
  • Two form factors: Standard PCIe low-profile form factor adapter fits most M4 systems and Mezzanine form-factor card installed in a dedicated slot on the system board of supported servers.
  • Support for Switch Independent vNIC mode, also known as NIC Partitioning or NPAR, where each physical port appears to the server as four virtual NICs. Bandwidth for each vNIC can be configured from 100 Mbps to 10 Gbps. This vNIC mode extends the existing VLANs to the virtual NIC interfaces. It uses IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tags to separate data traffic; the VLAN tags are added to the packet by the applications or drivers rather than by the switch.
  • Support for full FCoE and iSCSI hardware offload through the Features on Demand (FoD) license upgrade. This support enables flexibility and investment protection by letting you buy the FCoE or iSCSI license when you need it. FCoE and iSCSI can also be enabled with 4 of the vNIC ports (2 FCoE, 2 iSCSI) if vNIC is also enabled.
  • Full support for TCP/IP and Ethernet performance enhancements, such as Priority-Based Flow Control (802.1Qbb), jumbo frames, checksum offloads, and segmentation offloads.
  • Support for IPv4 and IPv6.
  • Support for Wake on LAN.
  • Port 1 can be configured to be a shared management port to remotely connect to the IMM2 management controller.
  • Note: The adapter only supports connectivity to a 10 Gb Ethernet switch. 1 Gb Ethernet connectivity is not supported.
