The HPE 366M is a HPE BladeSystem c-Class network adapter providing four Gigabit Ethernet ports on a single card saving valuable server mezzanine slots for other purposes. The x4 PCI Express 366M is supported on ProLiant c-Class servers in all mezzanine slots. For Gen8 ProLiant c-Class servers, the 366M is the first quad-port adapter option for c-Class with latest Intel® Ethernet I350 controller With the 366M, up to 96 Gigabit Ethernet ports per c7000 enclosure and 48 per c3000 enclosure are possible.
The four ports provide the highest port density available for BladeSystem servers in a single adapter. The 366M is ideal for virtualization, security, server consolidation, network segmentation, and other server applications requiring maximum throughput and port density in a 1 GbE infrastructure. The total aggregate throughput of 8Gbps full duplex also meets the needs for customers desiring high bandwidth but are not yet ready to move to 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
Supported on ProLiant Gen8 servers in all c-class enclosures, all server mezzanine slots (Mezzanine slot1 supports 2 ports & Mezzanine slot2 supports 4 ports); multiple cards per server.
Intel® Ethernet I350 controllers
Designed with server needs in mind: IEEE 802.1p, 802.1Q, 802.3, 802.3ad, and 802.3x, ProLiant Teaming including Network Fault Tolerance, Transmit Load Balancing, and Switch-Assisted Load Balancing, 9.5K Jumbo frames, Interrupt/DMA Coalescing, IEEE 1588 (Precision Time Stamping) & 802.1AS (Hardware enabled Time Synchronization), TCP/IP checksum offload (TCO) and large send offload (LSO), PXE, Intel® Integrated I/O and Data Direct I/O for increased performance and reduced latency, Virtualization with VMDq.
IPv6 packet transmit and receive (excluding all offload capabilities); IPv6 aware SNMPv1 agent for Windows
Up to 1000 Mbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port (4000 Mbps combined) delivers outstanding network performance designed to improve response time and remove bottlenecks across the entire network. Four ports on a single adapter are ideal for high density; I/O slot constrained blade servers, virtualization and security, applications, server consolidation, and increased network segmentation. The total aggregate throughput of 8Gbps full duplex also meets the needs for customers desiring high bandwidth but are not yet ready to move to 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
The 366M support for 9.5K jumbo frames (also known as extended frames) permit a 9.5K byte transmission unit (MTU), which is approximately six times the size of standard 1500 byte Ethernet frame. The 366M supports jumbo frames as a way to achieve higher throughput and better CPU utilization. Jumbo frames are particularly useful for database transfers and tape backups.
EEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the 366M to be separated into multiple virtual NICs for added network segmentation and enhanced security and performance. VLANs increase security by isolating traffic between users. Limiting the broadcast traffic to within the same VLAN domain also improves performance. IEEE quality of service (QoS) 802.1p tagging allows the adapter to mark or tag frames with a priority level across a QoS-aware network for improved traffic flow.
Supports DMA Coalescing, the incoming data packets and interrupts associated with these DMA calls are intelligently batched to keep the system devices in lower power states.
/O Virtualization support for VMware NetQueue, Microsoft VMQ and Intel's Virtualization Machine Device Queues(VMDq) help meet the performance demands of consolidated virtual workloads.
Compliant with Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), accommodating multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) to share single PCIe resources. The device is capable of SR-IOV, and requires Firmware, Software and OS support
The four ports on the 366M are transmitted to up to four separate enclosure interconnect bays providing redundant signal paths.
With multiple quad port adapters supported per server connected to up to two redundant pairs of interconnect modules per enclosure, a very wide variety of high availability I/O configurations are possible.
