Increasing demands on you network infrastructure. How are you going to respond?


Simplify data center networking with Marvell® FastLinQ® Ethernet 10/25GbE NIC Adapters. Designed for the most demanding server and network virtualized environments, Marvell FastLinQ (previously known as QLogic FastLinQ) enable next generation Cloud Data Center and Enterprise with a flexible, future proof, secure and comprehensive networking and storage solution.
It is Network I/O connectivity that works today and is ready for tomorrow!

 

Server and Network Virtualization

Marvell FastLinQ Ethernet 10/25GbE NICs are RDMA-enabled adapters, delivering QoS and guaranteeing vSAN network bandwidth without CPU cost. FastLinQ adapters extends benefits of optimizing network performance with more RDMA options – RoCE v1, RoCE v2 and iWARP capability resulting in include fewer interconnects, fewer components in fabric, flexible bandwidth capacity allocation, and programmatic QoS with bandwidth allocation.
FastlinQ 10/25 GbE adapters are qualified for VMWare ESXi / vSAN, integrated with vCenter and provide scalability options having backward compatibility with 1GbE network infrastructure

I/O Speeds Transition

Marvell FastLinQ 10GBASE-T adapters are backward compatible with 1GbE and use the same low cost CAT5a or CAT6 cabling and RJ-45 connectors. This greatly reduces the cost of transitioning from 1GbE to 10GbE and delivers much better network performance at the same time. Network Performance 25GbE - Improved Network Performance and lower costs for enterprise and DC. 25GbE uses single-lane connection akin to 10GbE , delivering 2.5 times more data Broad Connectivity: I/O Connectivity : 2x10/25GbE , 4x10GbE, smart Auto negotiation (SmartAN) Security Acceleration for IPSec enabled networks (LiquidIO only ), NIC secure firmware update, Secure Boot, Form factors (RJ45, SFP, SFP+), OCP 3.0 NICs

  • Faster Transition to 10GbE with interoperability on existing infrastructure and reduced TCO
  • Improved performance and lower cost with 2.5x more data on 25G network deployment (10G or 40G transition)
  • Broad connectivity options with 1x10/25GbE, 4x10GbE, Smart Auto-negotiation, Secure Boot and form factors (RJ45, SFP, SFP+)
  • vSAN Qualification and Integrated into vCenter
Disaggregation of Storage

Marvell delivers the most complete software ecosystem for disaggregated storage deployment by enabling both kernel and SPDK support. Customers can seamlessly migrate from legacy storage protocols (FCoE, iSCSI) to NVMe-oF with FastLinQ as the NICs/CNAs support concurrent operation of all legacy and next gen NVMe fabrics. Marvell delivers all the key fabrics for scaling out NVMe across the data center, including FC-NVMe, FCoE, NVME-oF RDMA, NVMe-oF TCP, and FC-NVMe. Customers can seamlessly migrate from legacy storage protocols (FCoE, iSCSI) to NVMe-oF with FastLinQ as the NICs/CNAs support concurrent operation of all legacy and next gen NVMe fabrics.
