Marvell FastLinQ 41000 Series Ethernet NICs

10GbE Ethernet NIC with Univeral RDMA

Marvell FastLinQ 41000 Series
Ethernet NICs

The Marvell® FastLinQ® 41000 Series 10/25GbE Ethernet NICs (previously known as QLogic FastLinQ) provide exceptional value in delivering industry-leading features and performance to enable the most efficient and agile software-defined data centers (SDDNs). Designed for the most demanding server and network virtualized environments, the 41000 series adapters enable Universal RDMA (RoCE and iWARP) as well as NPAR, VXLAN/NVGRE/GENEVE, and SR-IOV to boost server CPU efficiency and maximize application performance. Range of connectivity options include 10/25GbE SFP/SFP28 optical or direct attach copper (DAC) and 10GBASE-T RJ45.

Key Features

  • Scalable networks with 2.5x bandwidth for 25GbE when compared to 10GbE and more than 2x port density when compared to 40GbE
  • Optimum server performance with PCI Express® (PCIe) Gen3 x8 (10GbE/25GbE)
  • Low latency and high throughput with Universal RDMA with support for RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), RoCE v2 and Internet wide area RDMA protocol (iWARP)
  • Adaptive link controls for seamless zero-touch interoperability with industry wide 10/25/100GbE switches and cables using FastLinQ SmartAN™ technology
  • Enhanced CPU efficiency for networking tunneling with stateless offloads for VXLAN, NVGRE, GRE, and GENEVE
  • Designed to connect to high performance NVMe storage with iSER, NVMe-oF, NFSoRDMA, SMB Direct, Storage Spaces Direct (S2D), and VMware para-virtualized RDMA (pvRDMA)
  • Advanced server virtualization features such as NPAR and SR-IOV
  • Support for UEFI Secure Boot safeguards the FastLinQ NIC and ensures no rogue drivers are being executed on start-up, preventing the injection of malware.
  • Simplified deployment, troubleshooting and lifecycle management using the QConvergeConsole® (QCC) GUI, QCC PowerKit, QLogic® Control Suite™ (QCS) CLI, QCC vCenter GUI/ESXCLI Plug-ins, and OpenStack integration
  • Network boot support for PreBoot Execution Environment (PXE) 2.0, iSCSI remote boot, and UEFI boot
