10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) OverviewIntel and other vendors have been shipping 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) adapters for a decade. What has changed that is causing users to broadly adopt 10 GbE now? Why has this powerful technology taken so long to ramp? Why will deployments of 10 GbE grow even faster in the coming years? This white paper will provide answers to these questions and, in doing so, explain why now is the time for you to migrate to 10 GbE, if you haven’t already.Four key technology and market forces have been driving the need for 10 GbE: server virtualization, Moore’s Law server performance increases, unified networking, and Flash* in the data center. Three key trends have eased the transition: adapter I/O virtualization, improvements in server I/O performance, and, most importantly, tumbling deployment costs as 10GBASE-T goes mainstream.
EMC's Paul Brown discusses the seamless integration of Intel® Ethernet X520 Server Adapters with EMC solutions.
Delivering scalable I/O infrastructure using 10GBASE-T for cost-effectiveness and LOM technology.
Delivering flexibility for growing converged network demands with performance and virtualization.
