The Cisco UCS 1385 Virtual Interface Card provides a policy-based, stateless, agile server infrastructure for your data center. This dual-port enhanced QSFP half-height PCI Express (PCIe) card is designed exclusively for Cisco UCS C-Series rack servers. The card supports 40 GbE and Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). It incorporates Cisco's converged network adapter (CNA) technology and offers a comprehensive feature set, providing investment protection for future feature software releases. The card can present more than 256 PCIe standards-compliant interfaces to the host, and these can be dynamically configured as either network interface cards (NICs) or host bus adapters (HBAs). In addition, the VIC supports Cisco Data Center Virtual Machine Fabric Extender (VM-FEX) technology. This technology extends the Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnect ports to virtual machines, simplifying server virtualization deployment.
