HP NC364T PCI Express Quad Port Gigabit Server Adapter
The HP NC364T PCI Express Quad-Port Gigabit Server Adapter offers advanced networking capabilities with its four 10/100/1000T Gigabit Ethernet ports on a single card. This consolidation of ports saves valuable server I/O slots for other purposes, making it an efficient choice for various applications.
With four ports on a single adapter, the HP NC364T provides the highest port density available for ProLiant servers. This makes it an ideal solution for scenarios requiring maximum throughput and port density, such as virtualization, security, server consolidation, and network segmentation.
Aggregate Throughput and Compatibility
The total aggregate throughput of 4 Gbps meets the demands of customers seeking high bandwidth without yet transitioning to 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The adapter is designed for compatibility with x4, x8, and x16 PCI Express slots, offering flexibility in connectivity options.
Wide Range of Applications
The HP NC364T is tested and proven to meet stringent HP standards, offering full driver support across a variety of ProLiant servers. It comes equipped with teaming drivers, multiple VLAN tagging capability, and configuration utilities for major operating systems. The adapter's versatility makes it suitable for applications ranging from virtualization and security to server consolidation and network segmentation.
Enhancing Network Performance
The x4 PCI Express bus, with its theoretical throughput of 10 Gbps each direction, efficiently supports the four gigabit ports of the NC364T. With up to 1000 Mbps Ethernet transfer rate per port (4000 Mbps combined), the adapter significantly enhances network performance, reducing response times and eliminating bottlenecks across the network.
Key Features and Capabilities
The NC364T boasts several important features:
- Jumbo frames support, facilitating higher throughput and improved CPU utilization, particularly beneficial for database transfers and tape backups.
- IEEE 802.1Q VLAN protocol, enabling network segmentation, enhanced security, and performance optimization.
- IEEE quality of service (QoS) 802.1p tagging, ensuring priority-based traffic flow across a QoS-aware network.
- Standard TCP/IP offloading techniques, including TCP/IP checksum offload (TCO) and Large Send Offload (LSO), improve system response and efficiency.
- Interrupt coalescing (interrupt moderation) optimizes host efficiency by grouping multiple packets and reducing interrupt frequency.
- Dual address cycles (DAC) enhance system performance by addressing memory above 4 GB.
- Support for both 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps, ensuring compatibility with Ethernet and Fast Ethernet networks.
The HP NC364T is a low-profile card, compatible with both full height and half height PCI Express slots. The package includes a full height bracket pre-installed on the card, with a half height bracket included for flexibility.
Wake-on-LAN and PXE Support
The adapter offers Wake-on-LAN (WOL) support on Port 1, enabling remote server power-on capabilities. Additionally, support for pre-boot execution environment (PXE) facilitates remote software deployment and troubleshooting.
