The HPE Ethernet 1Gb 2-port 361FLB Adapter is a ProLiant c-Class BladeSystem FlexibleLOM network adapter with PCIe Gen 2.1 compliance providing two Gigabit Ethernet ports that utilizes only a maximum of 2.8 watts of power. The HPE 361FLB is a 1Gb FlexibleLOM that has been designed for use with select HPE BladeSystem c-Class Gen8 servers, featuring bridgeless Intel® Ethernet I350 Controller. 361FLB has performance enhancing features and new power management technologies. With the introduction of the 361FLB FlexibleLOM, ProLiant c-Class customers now have the choice and flexibility of choosing 1GbE solution that could pave the way for a future 10GbE upgrade. The 361FLB is ideal for virtualization, security, network segmentation, and other BladeSystem applications requiring 1GbE bandwidth. Tested and proven to meet demanding BladeSystem standards, the 361FLB ships with the advanced server features that ProLiant customers have come to expect, such as support for failover and load balancing, TCP/IP checksum offloading, large send offloading, Wake-on-LAN, jumbo frames, PXE, VLAN tagging, Virtualization, advanced power management features , new I/O technologies, IEEE 1588 and much more.
Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, Maximum 2.8 watts power usage, Supported on Select Gen8 ProLiant c-Class servers in FlexibleLOM slot, Intel® Ethernet I350 controller,
Designed with server needs in mind: IEEE 802.1p, 802.1Q, 802.3, 802.3ad, and 802.3x, 1588, 802.1AS, ProLiant Teaming including Network Fault Tolerance, Transmit Load Balancing, and Switch-Assisted Load Balancing, Jumbo frames, TCP/IP checksum offload (TCO) and large send offload (LSO), Interrupt/DMA coalescing, PXE, Wake-on-LAN (WOL), 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 (2000 Mbps combined) delivers outstanding network performance that improves response time and removes bottlenecks across the entire network.
Jumbo frames (also known as extended frames) permit a 9.5K byte transmission unit (MTU), which is six times the size of standard 1500 byte Ethernet frame. The 361FLB 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.
For overall improved system response, the 366M supports standard TCP/IP offloading techniques including:
- TCP/IP checksum offload (TCO) moves the TCP and IP checksum offloading from the CPU to the network adapter. - Large send offload (LSO) or TCP segmentation offload (TSO) allows the TCP segmentation to be handled by the adapter rather than the CPU.
Support for pre-boot execution environment (PXE) enables automatic deployment of computing resources remotely from anywhere. It allows a new or existing server to boot over the network and download software, including the operating system, from a management/ deployment server at another location on the network. Additionally, PXE enables decentralized software distribution and remote troubleshooting and repairs.
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.
ProLiant Network Adapter Teaming provides fault tolerance and load balancing across a team of two or more network adapters. The team of adapters works together as a single virtual adapter. Support for several different types of teaming is included. Teaming offers IT professionals an easy, efficient, and cost-effective way to provide network fault tolerance and increased network bandwidth.
