Chelsio S302/S304 Multi-Port GigE Adapters

Novell Technology Partner

product details

The T304 Quad-Port Gigabit Ethernet adapter is a high-performance adapter optimized for networked storage applications. It has on-board hardware that offloads TCP/IP processing and provides hardware acceleration of iSCSI, offloading these tasks from the host system. The result: the system gets increased bandwidth, improved overall performance, and reduced message latency across connections. It has two (S302) or four ports (S304) and link aggregation/failover provide high performance and availability. S304 offers the best price/performance for IP storage networking systems, and enables convergence of networking and storage interconnects to lower total cost of ownership.

The S304 is ideal for increasing the capabilities of NAS filers. With high-performance iSCSI for block-level storage traffic between servers and storage systems, low latency and low CPU overhead, 10GbE becomes the logical network technology for storage area networks (SANs). Ethernet-only networking reduces the data centers, network adapters, cables, switches, rack space, power, equipment spares, management tools, planning, networking skills, and installation costs.
