A series of network adapters offer an industry-driving implementation of hardware-based, realistic Converged Network Adapter (CNA) that totally offloads FCoE and the iSCSI SAN traffic. It integrates an extensive set of 10 GB Ethernet attributes making the best of virtualized SDDC (Software-Defined Data Center) driven by an SDN (Software Defined Networks).

Consistently, not all networking adapters possess the same potentials. It is here where some Ethernet adapters specified as having “converged networking” link attributes to iSCSI storage or Fiber Channel to the server is often misleading. This is where hardware-based true CNA provides all the virtualization potentials and fulfillment of the system in a 10 GB Ethernet adapter. Likewise, it provides hardware-based storage protocol offloads making it a clear leader in Performance, Reliability, and Control and at the same time delivers every single thing conceivable in the present and future needs.
