Item Description:
FACTORY DIRECT ITEM ONLY ThinkSystem Intel X710-DA2 PCIe 10Gb 2-Port SFP+ Ethernet Adapter


The Intel X710 family of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) server network adapters addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation data center. By providing unmatched features for server and network virtualization; small packet performance; and low power; the data center network is flexible; scalable; and resilient.

The X710 is available in three host connections: a standard PCIe host interface; a Mezzanine LOM (ML2) host interface for Think System and System x servers; and an Any Fabric host interface for Think Server systems (now withdrawn).

Product Features:

  • VXLAN/NVGRE Hardware Offloads: These stateless offloads preserve application performance for overlay networks. With these offloads; it is possible to distribute network traffic across CPU cores. At the same time; X710 offloads LSO; GSO; and checksum from the host software; which reduces CPU overhead.
  • Mobile and cloud application acceleration: Intel's Data Plan Development Kit (DPDK) delivers an open driver where users can fine-tune small packet performance; which delivers line-rate at 128 byte; and near line-rate at 64 byte.
  • Low latency: Intel Ethernet Flow Director delivers hardware-based application steering and Intel Data Direct I/O makes the processor cache the primary destination and source of I/O data rather than main memory. Combined; latency is reduced and Intel reports a three-fold improvement in RPS.
  • Virtualization performance: With Intel Virtualization Technology (VT); the X710 family of adapters delivers outstanding I/O performance in virtualized server environments. These adapters reduce I/O bottlenecks by providing intelligent offloads for networking traffic per virtual machine (VM); which enables near-line rate speeds for small packets and supports almost an unlimited amount of isolated traffic flows so that you can scale your cloud environment.
  • Next-generation VMDq: The X710 adapters support up to 256 VMDq VMs and offer enhanced Quality of Service (QoS) feature by providing weighted round-robin servicing for the Tx data. The adapters offload the data-sorting functionality from the hypervisor to the network silicon; which improves data throughput and CPU usage.
  • PCI-SIG SR-IOV implementation: Provides an implementation of the PCI-SIG standard for I/O Virtualization. The physical configuration of each port is divided into multiple virtual ports. Each virtual port is assigned to an individual VM directly by bypassing the virtual switch in the Hypervisor; which results in near-native performance.
  • VM load balancing: Provides traffic load balancing (Tx and Rx) across VMs that are bound to the team interface. It also provides fault tolerance if a switch; port; cable; or adapter fails.
