Chelsio’s T62100-LP-CR is a dual port 40/50/100Gb Ethernet unified wire adapter, with a PCI Express 3.0 x16 host bus interface, optimized for storage, cloud computing, HPC, virtualization and other datacenter networking applications. T62100-LP-CR runs all the host software, thus enabling leveraging of all the prior software investment. T62100-LP-CR provides sub micro-second end-to-end latency, while offloading the host CPU from a variety of typical storage, networking, and cloud related protocols. This will enable savings in host CPU acquisition costs, power and operational costs, and dramatically increases system performance.
A large portion of offloads enabled by T62100-LP-CR are based on standard TCP, IP, UDP protocols (such as iSCSI and iWARP), and thus can operate with a software peer, or be replaced with a software solution at lower performance, thus providing the requisite reliability for enterprise customers, and allowing incremental installs in the datacenter. It will work with any legacy switch infr
