The HP 530T adapter is a validated, tested, and qualified solution that is optimized for HP ProLiant servers.
HP validates a wide variety of major operating systems drivers with the full suite of web-based enterprise
management utilities including HP Intelligent Provisioning and HP Systems Insight Manager that simplify
network management.
This approach provides a more robust and reliable networking solution than offerings from other venders
and provides users with a single point of contact for both their servers and their network adapters.
Each HP 530T ships with a suite of operating system-tailored configuration utilities that allow the user to
enable initial diagnostics and configure adapter teaming. This includes a patented teaming GUI for
Microsoft Windows operating systems. Additionally, support for scripted installations of teams in a
Microsoft Windows environment allow for unattended OS installations.
The colored LEDs on each port of the HP 530T adapter indicate link status and link activity.
PXE allows the server to boot over the network and download software residing in the network.
Support for HP's Sea of Sensors which is a collection of 32 sensors that automatically track thermal
activity - heat - across the server. When temperatures get too high, sensors can kick on fans and make
other adjustments to reduce energy usage. What makes it better is the upgrade from all six fans kicking on
at one time to a new system where only one kicks on - the one in proximity of the area that started heating
up - thus reducing the amount of energy used for cooling.
VMware NetQueue is technology that significantly improves performance of 10 Gigabit Ethernet network
adapters in virtualized environments.
Microsoft Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) is a feature available on servers running Windows Server 2008 R2
with VMQ-enabled Ethernet adapters. VMQ uses hardware packet filtering to deliver packet data from an
external virtual machine network directly to virtual machines, which reduces the overhead of routing
packets and copying them from the management operating system to the virtual machine.
The HP 530T supports VMware NetQueue and Microsoft Virtual Machine Queue.
Maximum: The remaining warranty of the HP product in which it is installed (to a maximum three-year,
limited warranty).
Minimum: One year limited warranty.
