The HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 526FLR-SFP+ Converged Network Adapter is a low cost, low power dual port PCIe v2.0 x8 lane adapter designed for use in HP ProLiant Gen8 rack and scalable servers. The HP 526FLR-SFP+ addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation data center by by combining the concurrent functionality of a NIC (Ethernet), iSCSI, and Fibre Channel onto a single converged network adapter reducing the number of adapters and cables; reducing acquisition and operational costs.
The ability to concurrently run LAN, iSCSI and FCoE traffic provides HP customers with flexibility and scalability; thus reducing the cabling and configuration complexities of multiple adapters. The HP 526FLR-SFP+ CNA enables connections with Direct Attach Copper cables as well as SR fiber optic modules.
The HP 526FLR-SFP+ supports networking features such as VLAN tagging, Low latency interrupts, TCP/IP checksum offloading, MSI-X, NIC teaming (bonding), RSS, WOL, jumbo frames and PXE boot.
