The new Intel X710 family of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) server network adapters addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation data center. By providing unmatched features for server and network virtualization, small packet performance, and low power; the data center network is flexible, scalable, and resilient. The X710 is available in three form factors: a standard PCIe low-profile card, a Mezzanine LOM (ML2) form factor for ThinkSystem and System x servers, and an AnyFabric form factor for ThinkServer systems.Did you know? The Intel X710 adapters support Intel I/O Virtualization Technology, which helps accelerate data and improves application response times. For virtualized environments, the X710 adapters offer advanced features with VMDq that lower processor usage and increase I/O performance. Mezzanine LAN-on-Motherboard Generation 2 (ML2) and AnyFabric adapters are cost-effective adapters that offers the flexibility advantages of a PCIe adapter while supporting integrated networking features, such as Wake-on-LAN and direct connectivity to the server's service processor for NCSI-compliant out-of-band systems management.
