The fourth generation of OneConnect® OCe14000 Ethernet Network Adapters and CNAs is optimized to meet the needs of enterprises, cloud providers and telcos, while delivering a powerful set of features and capabilities.
- High-Performance Virtualization: The OCe14000 provides up to 50 percent better CPU utilization1 compared to standard NICs, increasing the number of virtual machines (VMs) supported per server; and a 4x performance increase in small packet network performance2.
- Data Acceleration with RDMA*: The OCe14000 adapters leverage RoCE* enabling server to server data movement directly between application memory without any CPU involvement providing high throughput and data acceleration on a standard Ethernet fabric without the need for any specialized infrastructure or management.
- Rapid, Secure and Scalable Hybrid Cloud Connectivity: Emulex Virtual Network Exceleration™(VNeX) offload technology provides up to 70 percent better performance1 vs. software-only implementations of overlay networking standards such as NVGRE and VXLAN.
- Increased Block Protocol Performance: The OCe14000 series of adapters provided a 2x increase in total block protocol IOPS over previous generation CNAs2.
- Centralized Management: Emulex OneCommand® Manager provides centralized management of all Emulex OneConnect Ethernet adapters and LightPulse® Fibre Channel HBAs.
Newest generation, enterprise-class, dual-port 10GbE CAN (supports RoCE* v2). Protocol offloads for stateless TCP/IP, VXLAN, NVGRE plus iSCSI and FCoE storage deliver maximum bandwidth – optics included.
Newest generation, enterprise-class, quad-port 10GbE CNA(supports RoCE* v2). Protocol offloads for stateless TCP/IP, VXLAN, NVGRE plus iSCSI and FCoE storage deliver maximum bandwidth – supports DAC.
Comprehensive streamlined administration of Emulex adapters from VMware vCenter Server management console OneCommand Manager for VMware vCenter Server is a software plug-in that integrates real-time lifecycle management of adapters provided by Emulex into the VMware vCenter console, using the desktop client or the vSphere 5.1 Web Client. This tight integration centralizes and simplifies virtualization management. OneCommand Manager for VMware vCenter Server builds on Emulex Common Information Model (CIM) providers and established OneCommand Manager features to proactively address key data center issues and improve operational efficiency across VMware hosts and clusters. The core functionality delivered includes multiprotocol management (Fibre Channel (FC), FC over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI, Network Interface Card (NIC)), online firmware flashing, configuration updates, adapter diagnostics, plus flexible graphical and command line interfaces. IT administrators can use OneCommand Manager for VMware vCenter Server to help accelerate adapter and network deployments, optimize configurations, increase availability and lower costs for VMware host systems. Administrators can use OneCommand Manager for VMware vCenter Server with either the vCenter desktop client or the vSphere 5.1 Web Client.
Simplify and streamline SAN management while reducing TCO OneCommand™ Manager, the successor to Emulex market proven HBAnyware management application, provides centralized management of Emulex fabric (Fibre Channel HBA) and network (iSCSI UCNA, FCoE CNA and 10Gb/s Ethernet Adapter) connectivity solutions in physical and virtual server deployments through a graphical user interface (GUI) as well as a fully scriptable command line user interface (CLI). OneCommand Manager provides powerful adapter provisioning and diagnostic capabilities helping to increase administration efficiency and business agility.
Delivering accelerated, simplified and enhanced driver development tools for unrivaled storage networking performance With the OneCore Storage drivers, we’ve designed their architecture components from the ground up, in an effort to simplify and accelerate the process of developing storage solutions to meet the dynamic needs of the storage array, and storage appliance markets that require enterprise-class, high bandwidth and low latency I/O connectivity.
OneCapture is an Emulex® adapter device driver utility that collects information from the operating system, Emulex software, and Emulex adapters to speed troubleshooting. With one-click OneCapture provides a snapshot of your system, which can be used by Broadcom and server OEM technical support to quickly diagnose and correct a number of issues.
Telcos around the world have long recognized the value of Emulex I/O solutions. Today’s telcos and carriers look for advanced features that will enable them to quickly develop and deliver quality network services to their customers. By supporting network functions virtualization (NFV) with innovative technology that caters specifically to telcos business requirements, Emulex OneConnect® Ethernet Network Adapters and Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) are the clear choice for an optimum I/O strategy. Support: The OneCommand PMD (poll mode driver) and associated drivers are designed to help design NFV solutions based on DPDK. The Emulex OneCommand PMD and SURF drivers are provided ‘as is’ with no warranty and very limited support. Supported solutions are based on PMD driver running on supported RHEL OS versions and tested with testpmd with unmodified drivers downloaded from Broadcom.com. The support configurations are documented in the user guide. For additional support we recommend working with the following partners: 6wind (6wind.com) Additional DPDK providers
