The HP FlexFabric 534M 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 technology, allowing each 10GbE port to be divided into four physical NICs and optimize bandwidth management for virtualized servers. The HP FlexFlexFabric 534M adapter, now has new storage I/O functionality making it a full-Converged Network Adapter (CNA). The HP 534M supports enterprise class features such as VLAN tagging, adaptive interrupt coalescing, MSI-X, NIC teaming (bonding), 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

Full hardware offload of iSCSI and FCoE storage protocol processing for highest performance converged Ethernet data and storage networks, Dual-port Flex-10 10GbE Type A adapter for HP BladeSystem c-Class Gen8 blade servers Industry-leading throughput and latency performance, The HP 534M is a Type A mezzanine adapter (works in Type A and Type B mezzanine slots), Supports HP's Flex-10 blade interconnect technology,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 (Windows, Linux, VMware)
The HP 534M 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 FlexFabric 10Gb Ethernet, Modules, take advantage of four Flex Nics, which are PCI Physical Function devices that are OS/ Hypervisor independent. In addition take advantage of new storage I/O functionality making it a full-Converged Network Adapter (CNA), 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 534M 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 separate NIC port.
The HP 534M adapter is compatible with Type A and B mezzanine slots for greater deployment versatility
The HP 534M 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.
