Designed for the most demanding server and network virtualized environments, Marvell FastLinQ (previously known as QLogic FastLinQ) 10/25GbE enable next generation Cloud, Data Center and Enterprise with a secure, future-proof, and comprehensive networking solution.
The FastLinQ 41000 10/25GbE is industry’s only ethernet adapter family that delivers the technology choice and investment protection with support for concurrent RoCE, RoCEv2 and iWARP – Universal RDMA. The FastLinQ adapters coupled with leading server and networking platforms enable enterprise data centers to optimize their infrastructure costs and increase virtual machine density by leveraging built-in technologies like concurrent SR-IOV and NIC Partitioning (NPAR) that deliver acceleration and QoS for tenant workloads and infrastructure traffic. FastLinQ Ethernet NICs are amongst the top choices for enterprise data centers.
Marvell FastLinQ 10GBASE-T adapters are backward compatible with 1GbE and use the same low cost CAT5a or CAT6 cabling and RJ-45 connectors. This greatly reduces the cost of transitioning from 1GbE to 10GbE. Technologies like NIC partitioning enable customers to preserve their network and application architecture when transitioning from multiple 1GbE ports to a few 10GbE ports. FastLinQ 25GbE adapters enabling zero-touch automatic speed and FEC selection using FastLinQ SmartAN™ technology, that virtually eliminates interoperability challenges in 25GbE physical layer networks.
Marvell delivers the most complete software ecosystem for disaggregated storage deployment by enabling storage acceleration with offloads like NVMe-oF™, NVMe/TCP, iSCSI, iSER and FCoE that enable a seamless upgrade path from existing storage paradigms to next generation NVMe and persistent memory semantics. Delivering up to 3M IOPS while consuming fewer server CPU cycles leaves headroom for virtual applications and enables higher ROI on server investments.
