Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Transforming the data center through a reliable and unified 10GbE network

- Feature

• PCI Express* 2.0, dual port 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller along with Intel® Xeon® processor 

   5500 series servers deliver the performance that demanding applications require.

• Industry-leading product innovations for I/O virtualization that are ideal for the dynamic data center.

• Unified networking support simplifies the network infrastructure by allowing LAN, SAN, 

   and IPC traffic to share the same data center fabric.

• Energy-efficient design with integrated SFI/KR PHYs that creates new opportunities for Blades

   and LAN-on-motherboard (LOM) solutions.

High-volume stable architecture with broad operating system support.
