ATTO’s FastFrame™ 10 Gigabit Ethernet Network Interface
Cards provide maximum throughput for high bandwidth
network connectivity for demanding IT and media and
entertainment applications.
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.
