Emulex 10Gb Virtual Fabric Adapter for IBM System x
IBM System x at-a-glance guide
The Emulex 10Gb Virtual Fabric Adapter for IBM System x is a member of IBM's comprehensive
networking portfolio of 1 Gb and 10 Gb Ethernet adapters and delivers industry-leading performance and
scalability per watt, reducing requirements for power and cooling. Protocol offloads enable the efficient
use of computing resources and the support of more virtual machines per CPU, and reduce the number of
servers required to support data center demands. Furthermore, the capability to use fiber-optic or twin-ax
copper cabling allows you to deploy the fabric of your choice.

Did you know
The Emulex 10Gb Virtual Fabric Adaper for IBM System x is based on the Emulex OneConnect Universal
Converged Network Adapter (UCNA) platform and will include support for Fibre Channel over Ethernet
(FCoE) as a future feature entitlement upgrade.
By using a common infrastructure for Ethernet and SANs, you can reduce capital expense for adapters,
switches, and cables; and operational expense for power, cooling, and IT administration.
