Building on the OEM relationship that saw HP ship the industry’s first high volume 10 Gigabit server connectivity into the x86 server market in 2006, NetXen’s NX3031-based, third-generation family of Intelligent NICs is now available as a stand-alone network adapter offering from HP, the HP NC522SFP Dual Port 10GbE Server Adapter. The NetXen NX3031 features two 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces; four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces; and NetXen’s flexible networking architecture, which enables HP to offer quad port 1GbE network connectivity in servers today along with a cost-effective option to upgrade to 10GbE connectivity.
“We are very pleased to be expanding our relationship with HP. The launch of the HP NC522SFP Dual Port 10GbE Server Adapter, together with the integration of our technology on HP ProLiant G6 servers, helps customers improve business results by delivering full 10 Gigabit Ethernet network bandwidth for ProLiant servers,” said Vikram Karvat, vice president of marketing and product development, NetXen. “With this announcement, NetXen 10 Gig is available from HP, across their entire portfolio of industry-leading HP ProLiant DL and ML servers.”
