Intel is pleased to announce the Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter X520 Series for the Open Compute Project.
Available in both single and dual-port SKU’s, these adapters deliver a proven, reliable solution for deployments of Ethernet for high bandwidth, low cost, 10GbE network connections. Increased I/O performance with Intel® Data Direct I/O Technology (DDIO) and support for intelligent offloads make this adapter a perfect match for scaling performance on Intel® Xeon® processor E5/E7 based servers.
The best-selling Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X520 Series is known for its high performance, low latency, reliability, and flexibility. The addition of the Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter X520 Series for Open Compute Project to the family delivers all the X520 capabilities, in an Open Compute Project (OCP) form factor. The Open Compute Project (OCP) is a Facebook* initiative to openly share custom data center designs to improve both cost and energy efficiency across the industry. The OCP uses a minimalist approach to system design thereby reducing complexity and cost, allowing data centers to scale out more effectively. By publishing the designs and specifications of this low-power, low-cost hardware, it can reduce the cost of infrastructure for businesses large and small.
