The date the product was first introduced.
Expected Discontinuance is an estimate of when a product will begin the Product Discontinuance process. The Product Discontinuance Notification (PDN), published at the start of the discontinuance process, will include all EOL Key Milestone details. Some business units may communicate EOL timeline details before the PDN is published. Contact your Intel representative for information on EOL timelines and extended life options.
PCI-SIG* SR-IOV Capable
Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) involves natively (directly) sharing a single I/O resource between multiple virtual machines. SR-IOV provides a mechanism by which a Single Root Function (for example a single Ethernet Port) can appear to be multiple separate physical devices.
Fiber Channel over Ethernet
Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) is an encapsulation of Fibre Channel frames over Ethernet networks. This allows Fibre Channel to use 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks (or higher speeds) while preserving the Fibre Channel protocol.
MACsec IEEE 802.1 AE
802.1AE is the IEEE MAC Security (MACsec) standard which defines connectionless data confidentiality and integrity for media access independent protocols.
IEEE 1588, also knows as the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is a protocol used to synchronize clocks throughout a computer network. On a local area network it achieves clock accuracy in the sub-microsecond range, making it suitable for measurement and control systems.
iWARP delivers converged, low-latency fabric services to data centers through Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Ethernet. The key iWARP components that deliver low-latency are Kernel Bypass, Direct Data Placement, and Transport Acceleration.
RoCEv2/RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access over Converged Ethernet v2) delivers converged, low-latency fabric services to data centers through RDMA over UDP/IP. UDP/IP (User Datagram Protocol) is a communication protocol used for time-sensitive transmissions such as video or voice that speeds up communications by not requiring a “handshake” from the receiving party.
Intel® Data Direct I/O Technology
Intel® Data Direct I/O Technology is a platform technology that improves I/O data processing efficiency for data delivery and data consumption from I/O devices. With Intel DDIO, Intel® Server Adapters and controllers talk directly to the processor cache without a detour via system memory, reducing latency, increasing system I/O bandwidth, and reducing power consumption.
