Intel® Ethernet Server Adapters are the easiest, most reliable, and most cost-effective way to connect servers to iSCSI SANs. They eliminate the need for expensive, proprietary iSCSI adapters, saving costs and simplifying your storage infrastructure.
Storage Area Network (SAN) growth, particularly among iSCSI-based SANs, has been increasing in recent years, driven by data-intensive business operations, including virtualization, data retention, and storage backup.
The iSCSI standard allows storage traffic transmission over Ethernet networks. Growth in iSCSI deployments has been fueled by the advantages iSCSI offers over other SAN technologies:
Intel® Ethernet Server Adapters are optimized for iSCSI, delivering outstanding performance, and stability while helping to simplify your network infrastructure.
Intel Ethernet Server Adapters deliver numerous advantages over other iSCSI solutions:
The latest 10 Gigabit Intel® Ethernet Server Adapters deliver new levels of iSCSI throughput on today's multicore processor-based servers in both virtualized and non-virtualized environments.
