Overview
The NC551m FlexFabric 10Gb mezzanine adapter supports Virtual Connect Flex-10 that allows each 10Gb port to be divided into
four physical NICs to optimize bandwidth management for virtualized servers. When connected to a Convergence Enhanced
Ethernet (CEE) capable switch, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Ethernet I/O are separated and routed to the corresponding
network. For iSCSI storage, the NC551m supports full protocol offload providing better CPU efficiency when compared to software
initiators enabling the server to handle increased virtualization workloads and compute-intensive applications. This combination of
high-performance network and storage connectivity reduces cost and complexity and provides the flexibility and scalability to fully
optimize BladeSystem servers. The NC551m delivers the performance benefits and cost savings of converged network connectivity
for HP BladeSystem servers. The dual-port NC551m optimizes network and storage traffic with hardware acceleration and offloads
for stateless TCP/IP, TCP Offload Engine (TOE), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI.
NOTE: HP BladeSystem c-Class Integrity Server Blades does not support iSCSI or TCP Offload Engine (TOE).
