HPE FlexFabric 556FLR-SFP+ network adapter

HPE FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 556FLR-SFP+ Adapter

Do you need a high-performance 10 Gb Ethernet adapter for your HPE ProLiant Gen9 server family? The HPE FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 556FLR-SFP+ Adapter is installed in the FlexibleLOM socket in the ProLiant Gen9 Rack/Tower servers. The adapter offers 10GbE FlexibleLOM with Tunnel Offload feature. It provides full-featured, high-performance, converged 10 Gb Ethernet that accelerates IT services and increases data center efficiency. Tunnel Offload provides efficient overlay networking to increase VM migration flexibility and network scale with minimal impact to performance. Traditional layer 2 networks limit mobility and scale of virtualized and multi-tenant workloads.

Lower Costs and Deliver Faster Services by Converging FCoE with LAN Traffic on a Single Wire

  • The HPE FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 556FLR-SFP+ Adapter is the industry’s first product to converge FCoE with LAN traffic on a single Ethernet fabric, reducing the complexity for managing multiple traffic in the data center.
  • This adapter can cost-effectively increase server I/O bandwidth and avoid bottlenecks in your HPE ProLiant Gen9 Server today and in the future.
  • Simplify the infrastructure by reducing 87% of the hardware compared to previous 1GbE generations, reducing operational costs and acquisition costs.
  • Provide up to 40 Gb/s of converged bi-directional bandwidth, helping to alleviate network bottlenecks.

Improve Network Virtualization Performance and Scale with Tunnel Offload

  • The HPE FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 556FLR-SFP+ Adapter uses Tunnel Offload and a 10GbE bandwidth improvement to take full advantage of overlay networking.
  • You can increase I/O throughput up to 129%, and reduce CPU and power consumption by 42% and 122% respectively using Tunnel Offload.1
  • Increase the scale of VMs/VLANs beyond the traditional limit of 4,096.
  • Simplify network services provisioning.
  • Get up to 4x improvement in small packet performance.1
