ConnectX®-2 EN Dual-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller with PCI Express 2.0


Mellanox ConnectX-2 EN 10 Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Controller (MAC) delivers high-band- width and industry-leading 10GbE connectivity with stateless offloads for performance-driven server and storage applications in High-Performance Computing, Enterprise Data Centers, and Embedded environments. Clustered databases, web infrastructure, and IP video servers are just a few applications that will achieve significant throughput and latency improvements resulting in faster access, real-time response and more users per server. ConnectX-2 EN improves network performance by increasing available bandwidth while decreasing the associated transport load on the CPU and providing enhanced performance, especially in virtualized server environments. The device is well suited for Blade Server and LAN on Motherboard (LOM) designs due to its small overall footprint requirement.
