The ST10000SPEX PCI Express 10 Gbps Network Card requires a PCI Express x4 (or higher) slot to connect a 10-Gigabit Ethernet port to your server or high-powered workstation. More bandwidth is also needed at different levels of your infrastructure, with growing demand for network services due to massive file transfers, increased network users and multimedia content. This 10 Gb NIC provides your file or application server or even a high-powered workstation with a cost-effective solution to transfer more data faster. The card provides added bandwidth over regular Cat 6a cabling, completely compatible with the IEEE 802.3an 10GBASE-T regular, to meet your network needs without an overhaul of your infrastructure wiring, or an expensive upgrade to fibre. Compatibility with VMWare ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization applications and iSCSI support to merge LAN and SAN functions is also supported by the 10 Gbps network card. The 10GBASE-T card features the Tehuti TN4010 chipset, compatible with 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet and with substantially reduced power consumption compared to the common Intel X540-AT1 chipset, for peak operating performance. In order to avoid raising the operating temperature inside your server case, the reduced power consumption also helps to mitigate heat produced by the card. Intel X540-AT1 Speed Power Consumption 4.50W 10.8W @ 10 Gbps 3.3.W 7.7W @ 1 Gbps 2.48W 6.4W @ 100 Mbps The card is also supported by 16 K Jumbo Frames, 802.1q VLAN tagging, and is backward compatible with 1 Gbps and 100 Mbps network connexions. Power Consumption Benchmark ST10000SPEX (Tehuti TN4010) The controller card is fitted with a regular profile bracket for enhanced flexibility and provides a low-profile / half-height bracket for installation in computers with a limited form-factor.
