The HP 530M is a 2-port 10GbE Mezzanine adapter, featuring the next generation of 10Gb Ethernet offering in a single chip solution on a mezzanine form factor that further reduces power requirements for 2 ports of 10Gb Ethernet. It is designed for use with HP BladeSystem c-Class Gen8 blade server platform's type A and Type B mezzanine slots. It provides full duplex high performance Ethernet connectivity with support for HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 blade interconnect and Network Partitioning (NPAR) technology, allowing each 10GbE port to be divided into four physical NICs and optimize bandwidth management for virtualized servers. The HP Flex-10 530M adapter, in conjunction with HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 and NPAR technology, helps to extend the benefits of virtualization beyond the server and into the rest of the infrastructure. The HP 530M supports enterprise class features such as VLAN tagging, adaptive interrupt coalescing, MSI-X, NIC teaming (bonding), Tunnel Offloads (NVGRE VxLAN), Receive Side Scaling (RSS), jumbo frames and PXE boot. It also supports virtualization features such as SR-IOV (Windows, Linux, VMware)), VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ.

Dual-port Flex-10 10GbE Type A adapter for HP BladeSystem c-Class Gen8 blade servers, Industry-leading throughput and latency performance, The HP 530M is a Type A mezzanine adapter (works in Type A and Type B mezzanine slots) Tunnel Offload support for NVGRE and VxLAN, Optimized for virtual server environments with support for HP Flex-10 Technology, Network Partitioning (NPAR) and Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV)User configurable bandwidth settings when combined with the 10Gb Flex-10 Virtual Connect module. From 100Mb/s to10Gb/s on up to four "Physical Function" NICs per port, in increments of 100Mb/s for NIC. The combined bandwidth of NICs cannot exceed port bandwidth i.e. 10 Gb. Up to 40Gb/s bi-directional near line rate throughput, Hardware acceleration and offloads for stateless TCP/IP, TCP Offload Engine (TOE), Improved small packet performance, Integrated PHY and MAC, Support for Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE), Support for SR-IOV.
The HP 530M adapter delivers 20,000 Mbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port (40 Gbps aggregate full duplex), providing the network performance needed to improve response times and alleviate bottlenecks that impact performance of next generation data centers. 10Gb Ethernet bandwidth is ideal for high performance computing, database clusters and virtualization.
Evolve 10Gb at your own speed! When paired with the HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 10Gb Ethernet, Modules, take advantage of four Flex Nics, which are PCI Physical Function devices that are OS/ Hypervisor independent. Server ROM recognizes them as individual NICs, Speeds can be set per NIC from 100Mb to 10Gbs in 100Mb increments, Three fold increase in number of network connections per port. Up to four physical function NICs per port. Ideal for virtualized server environment, especially for dedicated bandwidth application like virtual machine migration from one physical server to another physical server.
The HP 530M adapter supports jumbo frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a 9K byte (KB) transmission unit (MTU) when running Ethernet I/O traffic. This is over 5X the size of a standard 1500-byte Ethernet frame. With jumbo frames, networks can achieve higher throughput performance and greater CPU utilization. These attributes are particularly useful for database transfer and tape backup operations.
EEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the HP 530M 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.
The HP 530M does not support accelerated iSCSI or iSCSI boot.
The HP 530M supports NIC partitioning for ProLiant Gen8 blade servers. Allowing administrators to configure a 10Gb port as four separate partitions or physical functions. Each PCI function is associated with a different virtual NIC. To the OS and the network, each physical function appears as a separateNIC port.
The HP 530M adapter supports the Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) allows the server to boot over the network and download software residing in the network.
The HP 530M adapter is compatible with Type A and B mezzanine slots for greater deployment versatility
The HP 530M adapter support for NIC teaming helps IT administrators increase network fault tolerance and improve workload balance. These capabilities optimize availability, improve performance and help reduce costs
