These quad-port adapters provide high-performing, multi-port Gigabit connectivity in a multi-core platform as well as in a virtualized environment. In a multi-core platform, the adapters support different technologies such as Intel QuickData technology, MSI-X, and low latency interrupts, that help in accelerating the data across the platform, thereby improving application response times.
The I/O technologies on a multi-core platform make use of the multiple queues and multiple interrupt vectors available on the network controller. These queues and interrupt vectors help in load balancing the data and interrupts amongst themselves in order to lower the load on the processors and improve overall system performance. For example, depending upon the latency sensitivity of the data, the low level latency interrupts feature can bypass the time interval for specific TCP ports or for flagged packets to give certain types of data streams the least amount of latency to the application.
The Intel Gigabit ET Quad Port Server Adapters showcase the latest virtualization technology called Intel Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (Intel VT for Connectivity). Intel VT for Connectivity is a suite of hardware assists that improve overall system performance by lowering the I/O overhead in a virtualized environment. This optimizes CPU usage, reduces system latency, and improves I/O through-put. Use of multi-port adapters in a virtualized environment is very important because of the need to provide redundancy and data connectivity for the applications/workloads in the virtual machines.
  • Designed for multi-core processors
  • Optimized for virtualization
  • PCI-SIG SR-IOV implementation
  • End-to-end wired security
  • On-board management features

Intel VT for Connectivity is a suite of hardware assists that improve overall system performance by lowering the I/O overhead in a virtualized environment. This optimizes CPU usage, reduces system latency, and improves I/O through-put. Use of multi-port adapters in a virtualized environment is very important because of the need to provide redundancy and data connectivity for the applications/workloads in the virtual machines. Due to slot limitations and the need for redundancy and data connectivity, it is recommended that a virtualized physical server needs at least six GbE ports to satisfy the I/O requirement demands.
  • PCI-SIG SR-IOV implementation
    PCI-SIG SR-IOV implementation helps direct connectivity from the adapter to the virtual machines in order to provide near-native performance. PCI-SIG SR-IOV offers a standard mechanism for I/O devices such as network ports to advertise their ability to be simultaneously shared among multiple virtual machines. Each virtual machine is assigned its own virtual network port. By offloading this connectivity functionality to the adapter, you improve CPU usage and reduce latency.
  • End-to-end wired security
    The Intel Gigabit ET Quad Port Server Adapters are Intel's first PCIe adapters to provide authentication and encryption for IPsec and LinkSec. LinkSec is already designed into the network adapter hardware. These adapters are future proof and prepared to provide LinkSec functionality when the ecosystem supports this technology. IPsec provides data protection between the end-point devices of a network communication session. The IPsec offload feature is designed to offload authentication and encryption of some types of IPsec traffic and still delivers near line-rate throughput and reduced CPU utilization.
  • On-board management features
    The Intel Gigabit ET Quad Port Server Adapters enable network manageability implementations required by IT personnel for remote control and alerting by sharing the LAN port and providing standard interfaces to a Board Management Controller (BMC). The adapter provides filtering capabilities to determine which traffic is forwarded to the host.
