Emulex has announced the availability of its OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapters (UCNAs) for servers that it claims can offer full hardware offload support for TCP/IP, iSCSI and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), all in a single card.
Available now through Emulex's distribution channel, the new 10Gbit/s UCNAs are offered on a pay-as-you-go model, under which customers can purchase a baseline card and enable the extra features at a later date.
The OneConnect family consists of the 10Gbit/s Ethernet OCe10102-N, the OCe10102-I iSCSI adapter, and the OCe10102-F FCoE Converged Network Adapter, all based on a single high-performance chip.
All OneConnect adapters support full TCP/IP hardware offload, including TCP Chimney, and hardware offloads can be added for iSCSI or FCoE when end users are ready for network convergence, according to Emulex.
"Our unique pay-as-you-go model allows end users to easily scale their infrastructures with a base 10Gbit/s Ethernet network adapter and field enablement options for iSCSI and FCoE hardware acceleration, providing unparalleled investment protection and virtualised server performance," said Steve Daheb, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of business development at Emulex.
