Today Emulex announced general availability of its OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapters (UCNA) and OneCommand Manager software. With this announcement, Emulex is making a strong move into the 10Gb Ethernet network adapter marketplace, while continuing its existing Fibre Channel HBA business.
Today’s announcement includes the general availability of three different adapters, a 10GbE NIC with TCP/IP offload, a 10Gb iSCSI adapter with full iSCSI offload and full TCP/IP offload, and a 10Gb converged network adapter (CNA) supporting Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCOE) that includes full TCP/IP offload. These dual-port, PCI-Express 2.0 x8 products are available immediately through distributors worldwide, and are expected to be available through major server and storage vendors in the future. The UCNAs have been qualified to run with Microsoft and Linux operating systems, and other environments are expected to be officially supported soon.
