Industry Proven Technology FastFrame 10GbE Network Interface Cards are built on an industry standard, Ethernet technology from Intel. The FastFrame NS14, NS12 and NS11 simplify networking administration, integrate seamlessly into existing environments and reduce the total cost of ownership by improving connection bandwidth and eliminating redundant network infrastructure components. Flexible Connectivity Solutions FastFrame 10GbE Network Interface Cards provide the most flexible and scalable connectivity for today’s data center environments. By leveraging Data Center Bridging and support for software iSCSI initiators FastFrame network adapters offer the ability to support both local and storage area networks. With broad operating system support NS14, NS12 and NS11 offer optimized connectivy for high bandwidth environments. Technical Features • Quad, dual and single port configurations • Up to 10Gb/s throughput per port • High-performance x8 PCIe 2.0 bus • Low profile (single and dual channel) or full height form factor • Support for Data Center Bridging and software iSCSI initiators • Driver support for Windows® , Linux and Mac® operating systems • TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offloading, IPsec offloading and Tx/TCP segmentation offloading Performance Engineered FastFrame cards, with support for link aggregation and failover, offer redundancy and high • Load-balancing on multiple CPUs availability for critical network applications. The FastFrame NICs provide industry-leading throughput and latency management with minimal CPU utilization and power • Minimized interrupts for low latency consumption. With 10Gb/s data transfer rates and multiple offloads (IPsec, TCP, IPv4, UDP), FastFrame adapters are the premier connectivity choice for bandwidth-intensive applications such as data back-up and restoration, clustered computing, IP content delivery, medical imaging, and video rendering. With multi-core processors driving the need for higher bandwidth, FastFrame 10GbE network adapters deliver superior • Industry’s lowest power consumption • 3-year standard product warranty throughput to meet that need. Advanced Network Management FastFrame 10GbE Network Interface Cards provide a common foundation for both Ethernet and storage networks. The FastFrame Ethernet adapters leverage unified network investments and eliminate the need for multiple adapters and switches, while reducing power and cooling expenses. By providing multi-protocol support and leveraging 10Gb Converged Enhanced Ethernet links, FastFrame Network Interface Cards dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of a data center’s cabling infrastructure. attotech.com 716.691.1999 Tech Sheet 10 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapters FastFrame™ NS14, NS12, NS11 Technical Specifications Applications FastFrame™ 10GbE Network Interface Cards combine the unparalleled performance of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, the lossless benefits of Enhanced Ethernet and robustness of software iSCSI initiators, to meet the performance and economic needs of today’s growing data centers.
