The HPE FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 630FLB adapter features the first generation of 20Gb Ethernet offering in a single chip solution on a FlexibleLOM form factor, further reducing power requirements for 2 ports of 20Gb Ethernet. It is designed for use with HPE BladeSystem c-Class Gen8 and Gen9 servers. It provides full duplex high performance Ethernet connectivity with support for HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric blade interconnect and Network Partitioning (NPAR) technology, allowing each 20GbE port to be divided into four physical NICs and optimize bandwidth management for virtualized servers. The HPE 630FLB FlexFabric network adapter, in conjunction with HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric technology, helps to extend the benefits of virtualization beyond the server and into the rest of the infrastructure.
The HPE 630FLB supports enterprise class features such as VLAN tagging, adaptive interrupt coalescing, MSI-X, NIC teaming (bonding), Tunneling Offloads (NVGRE, VxLAN), Receive Side Scaling (RSS), jumbo frames and PXE boot. It also supports virtualization features such as SR-IOV, Network Partitioning (NPAR), , VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ.
HPE FlexFabric 630FLB Adapter also supports 1Gb or 10Gb connections with the following modules: HPE 10GbE Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class BladeSystem, HPE 1Gb Ethernet Pass-Thru Module for c-Class BladeSystem, HPE Cisco B22HP Fabric Extender with 16 FET for BladeSystem c-Class.
Full hardware offload of iSCSI and FCoE storage protocol processing for highest performance converged Ethernet data and storage networks, Dual-port 20GbE Flex-20 FlexibleLOM network adapter that provides the flexibility to choose the type of LOM to meet growing infrastructure needs, Industry-leading throughput and latency performance, Optimized for virtual server environments with support for HPE Flex-20 Technology, Network Partitioning (NPAR) and Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), User configurable bandwidth settings when combined with the 20Gb Flex-20 Virtual Connect module or using NPAR. From 100Mb/s to 20Gb/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, Support for Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE), Integrated PHY and MAC, Support for Tunnel Offload (NVGRE, VxLAN).
The HPE 630FLB adapter delivers 40,000 Mbps full duplex Ethernet transfer rate per port (80 Gbps aggregate full duplex), providing the network performance needed to improve response times and alleviate bottlenecks. 20Gb Ethernet bandwidth is ideal for high performance computing, database clusters.
Evolve 20Gb at your own speed! When paired with the HPE Virtual Connect FlexFabric 20Gb 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 20Gbs in 100Mb increments, Threefold 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 HPE 630FLB 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.
The HPE 630FLB supports accelerated iSCSI or iSCSI boot and FCoE.
Supports the Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) allows the server to boot over the network and download software residing in the network
Compatible with HPE FlexibleLOM slot for c-Class Gen8/9 blade servers
The HPE 630FLB adapter can be administered from HPE Systems Insight Manager (SIM). The adapters can be managed individually or in teams, providing SNMP based statistics for reporting purposes. The 630FLB adapter can also be managed by other applications with SNMP support.
