Adapter
IBM Redbooks Product Guide
The IBM Flex System™ EN4132 2-port 10Gb Ethernet Adapter delivers high-bandwidth and
industry-leading Ethernet connectivity for performance-driven server and storage applications in
enterprise data centers, high-performance computing (HPC), and embedded environments. Clustered
databases, web infrastructure, and high frequency trading are just a few applications that achieve
significant throughput and latency improvements, resulting in faster access, real-time response, and more
users per server. Based on Mellanox ConnectX-3 EN technology, this adapter improves network
performance by increasing available bandwidth while decreasing the associated transport load on the
processor.
The following figure shows the IBM Flex System EN4132 2-port 10Gb Ethernet Adapter.

Did you know?
Mellanox networking adapters deliver industry-leading bandwidth with ultra low, sub-microsecond latency
for performance-driven server clustering applications. Combined with the IBM Flex System Fabric
EN4093 10Gb Scalable Switch, your organization can achieve efficient computing by off-loading the
processor protocol processing and data movement overhead, such as RDMA and Send/Receive
semantics, allowing more processor power for the application.
