HP 554FLB FlexibleLOM
Overview
The HP FlexFabric 10Gb Ethernet 2-port 554FLB
FlexibleLOM is available as a converged LAN
on Motherboard (LOM) for HP c-Class ProLiant
BladeSystem Gen8 servers.
Based on the Emulex OneConnect
Converged Network Adapter (UCNA) technology,
the HP 554FLB FlexibleLOM supports Transmission
Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and Fibre
Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) or accelerated iSCSI
connectivity concurrently with high-performance
protocol offloads that optimize server efficiency and
maximize server virtualization ratios.
Emulex OneConnect UCNA technology fully
supports HP's FlexFabric Converged Infrastructure,
a next-generation, highly scalable data center
fabric architecture and a technology layer in the
HP Converged Infrastructure architecture.
Optimized Network Connectivity
Lower cost—HP 554FLB FlexibleLOMs can save
up to 98% on adapter cards, switch ports and cables
needed to support network and storage traffic.
Support for converged networks with HP
Virtual Connect—HP Virtual Connect provisions
Local Area Network (LAN) and Storage Area
Network (SAN) connectivity for BladeSystem
server blades through administration of Media
Access Control (MAC) and World Wide Port
Names (WWPN) addresses. This allows server
administrators to independently manage blade
servers and their connectivity, maintaining high-
availability connections and securely administering
MAC addresses and WWPNs for each server.
Support for HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric—
HP 554FLB FlexibleLOMs support network
convergence with HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric.
Each physical port is virtualized as three NIC ports
and one FCoE or iSCSI port.
Support for HP Virtual Connect Flex-10—
HP 554FLB FlexibleLOMs also support Virtual
Connect Flex-10 that allows each 10Gb port to
be divided into four physical NICs to optimize
bandwidth allocation for virtualized servers.
