Quanta

The Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) Open Compute Project (OCP) Networking (ON) 10Gb and 40Gb Skyhawk Ethernet Network adapters provide high performance 10GbE and 40GbE connectivity in an OCP mezzanine form factor powered by Emulex Skyhawk XE100 series controller.
 
The QCT ON 10GbE and 40GbE Skyhawk Ethernet Network Adapters enable:
 
  • Increased data center IT agility and scalability through deployment of a secure multi-tenant cloud
  • Optimized server hardware utilization by scaling high density virtualization
  • Deliver user-controlled bandwidth partitioning across workloads and management services
The QCT ON 10GbE and 40GbE Skyhawk Ethernet network adapters are designed for the high bandwidth and scalability demands of enterprise applications, more scalable virtualization with support for RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) fabric, enhanced Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) and Network Interface Card (NIC) port partitioning, and next-generation overlay network technologies that address the requirements virtual machine (VM) mobility and massive scaling of Layer 2 subnets inside private or hybrid cloud infrastructures.
 
The Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation is a rapidly growing community of engineers around the world whose mission is to design and enable the delivery of the most efficient server, storage and data center hardware designs for scalable computing. The OCP designs are maximized for total cost of ownership (TCO), energy efficiency, and reduced complexity in the scalable computing space. The QCT ON adapters adhere to the mezzanine card specification for OCP Network Mezzanine v2 specification.
