CHELSIO’S N320E Server Adapter is a dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter with PCI Express host bus interface for servers and storage systems. The cost-effective N320E provides higher bandwidth for end nodes f with advanced stateless offload. The N320E represents the third generation of Chelsio’s server adapters. Easy to deploy, it comes complete with turn-key drivers for major server operating systems. Chelsio’s 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters have been subjected to thousands of hours of compatibility testing and over two years of stress testing by various OEM test suites, with different operating systems. The robust N320E delivers the most reliable performance and best value for 10GbE connectivity in the industry. The adapter’s two ports and IEEE 802.3ad link aggregation/failover features are ideal for critical network applications that require redundancy and high-availability capabilities. By using Chelsio’s N320E, enterprises can cost-effectively connect servers and storage systems directly to the 10GbE backbone over CX4 copper cabling. As an upgrade or an alternative to aggregated Gigabit Ethernet links, 10GbE boosts connection bandwidth and simplifies cabling, installation, and maintenance. The N320E also provides additional bandwidth needed to consolidate server functions on fewer, more powerful systems – simplifying management and reducing costs for servers, rackspace, power consumption, and maintenance. Applications with large data sets benefit from a high-speed distributed platform, including video rendering and distribution, data visualization such as remote medical imaging and climatic modeling, and bioinformatics applications such as DNA sequencing.
