Broadcom launches portfolio of best-in-class 1G and 10G Ethernet solutions for HP ProLiant Gen8 servers

IRVINE, USA: Broadcom Corp. unveiled a new portfolio of Ethernet LOMs (LAN on motherboard) and adapters for HP's new ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) servers. Broadcom's latest generation of 1GbE and 10GbE NetXtreme controllers provide increased performance, efficiency and scalability for HP Gen8 servers in enterprise networks.

Broadcom is offering five new adapters for HP ProLiant Gen8 servers, available in a variety of dual-port and quad-port network interface cards (NICs), as well as FlexNet cards and mezzanine cards. These solutions are designed for a wide range of network configurations and provide full compatibility with HP's new servers.

Rising demand for server virtualization, cloud computing, and I/O intensive applications are driving the need for greater processing capabilities in enterprise networks and data centers. A recent survey by IDC concludes that top priorities for IT managers in 2012 are virtualization, improving system management and adding new servers. Broadcom's latest Ethernet adapter solutions are engineered to help IT managers meet these demands while leveraging features and benefits unique to HP's ProLiant Gen8 servers.

Based on NetXtreme Ethernet controllers, Broadcom's new adapters and LOMs are engineered for use with HP's servers, delivering full line-rate throughput across all ports. To support enterprise and data center efficiency and scalability requirements, Broadcom's NetXtreme family offers advanced functionality including Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and IEEE 1588 time synchronization. The new adapter portfolio also leverages Broadcom's highly-integrated 40nm PCIe single-chip solutions that enable lower power consumption (up to 42 percent), contributing to reduced IT operating costs.
