FastLinQ 578xx Series Ethernet Controllers

Quad-port, dual-port, and single-port 20/10 GbE converged network controllers

FastLinQ 578xx Series Ethernet Controllers

Ethernet Controllers

The Marvell® FastLinQ® 578xx Series Ethernet Controllers are sixth generation of converged network controllers. They boast industry-leading offloaded iSCSI ad FCoE performance—achieving up to quad-port, line-rate, 10Gbps Fibre Channel over Ethernet throughput—at extremely low CPU utilization with full hardware offloads. In addition, the controllers support simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP), SAN (FCoE-Offload and iSCSI-Offload) traffic at line rate, 10Gbps Ethernet (GbE) speeds. This extreme performance eliminates potential I/O bottlenecks in today’s powerful multiprocessor, multicore servers.

Key Features

  • 10GbE per-port maximum throughput for high bandwidth converged storage (SAN) and networking traffic
  • Over 2,600,000 FCoE-offload and over 1,500,000 iSCSI-offload IOPS per device reduce latency in high transaction intensive applications and virtualized environments
  • Reduced hardware, cabling, and management costs by enabling simultaneous TCP/IP, FCoE-Offload, and iSCSI-Offload on one controller
  • Flexible network port configurations with a rich mix of 10GbE options
