Standard Features

Product Features
Dual-port 10 Gigabit
The HP 534M adapter delivers 20,000 Mbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port (40 Gbps aggregate full
Ethernet Throughput
duplex), providing the network performance needed to improve response times and alleviate bottlenecks
that impact performance of next generation data centers. 10Gb Ethernet bandwidth is ideal for high
performance computing, database clusters and virtualization.
HP Virtual Connect
Evolve 10Gb at your own speed! When paired with the HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb Ethernet
FlexFabric 10Gb
Modules, take advantage of four Flex Nics, which are PCI Physical Function devices that are OS/ Hypervisor
Ethernet Module for
independent. In addition take advantage of new storage I/O functionality making it a full-Converged Network
the c-Class
Adapter (CNA)
Server ROM recognizes them as individual NICs
Speeds can be set per NIC from 100Mb to 10Gbs in 100Mb increments
Three fold increase in number of network connections per port.
Up to four physical function NICs per port.
Ideal for virtualized server environment, especially for dedicated bandwidth application like virtual machine
migration from one physical server to another physical server.
Jumbo Frames
The HP 534M adapter supports jumbo frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a 9K byte
(KB) transmission unit (MTU) when running Ethernet I/O traffic. This is over 5X the size of a standard 1500-
byte Ethernet frame. With jumbo frames, networks can achieve higher throughput performance and greater
CPU utilization. These attributes are particularly useful for database transfer and tape backup operations.
Message Signaled Interrupt (Extended) provides performance benefits for multi-core servers by load
balancing interrupts between CPUs/cores.
802.1p QoS Tagging IEEE quality of service (QoS) 802.1p tagging allows the adapter to mark or tag frames with a priority level
across a QoS-aware network for improved traffic flow.
802.1Q VLANs
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the HP 530M to be
separated into multiple virtual NICs for added network segmentation and enhanced security and
performance. VLANs increase security by isolating traffic between users. Limiting the broadcast traffic to
Full hardware offload of iSCSI and FCoE storage protocol processing for highest performance
converged Ethernet data and storage networks.
Dual-port Flex-10 10GbE Type A adapter for HP BladeSystem c-Class Gen8 blade servers
Industry-leading throughput and latency performance
The HP 534M is a Type A mezzanine adapter (works in Type A and Type B mezzanine slots)
Supports HP's Flex-10 blade interconnect technology
User configurable bandwidth settings when combined with the 10Gb Flex-10 Virtual Connect
module. From 100Mb/s to10Gb/s on up to four "Physical Function" NICs per port, in increments of
100Mb/s for NIC. The combined bandwidth of NICs cannot exceed port bandwidth i.e. 10 Gb.
Up to 40Gb/s bi-directional near line rate throughput
Hardware acceleration and offloads for stateless TCP/IP, TCP Offload Engine (TOE)
Improved small packet performance
Integrated PHY and MAC
Support for Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE)
Support for SR-IOV (Windows, Linux, VMware)
