|The SMC Tiger Card™ 10G (SMC10GPCIe-XFP) is a 10 gigabit
Ethernet server adapter that runs on a high speed PCIe x8 host
bus interface with pluggable XFP modules* (SR or LR). The pluggable
feature provides the fl exibility of different 10 Gigabit Ethernet
networking expansions, delivering 10GbE performance from 300m
(SR) to 10km (LR) distances between ports.
The growth and expansion of networking environments that contain
highly complex applications that create and transfer huge fi les
such as high performance computing (HPC), database clusters,
and video on demand will require higher bandwidth on the network.
The extremely low latency and high throughput of the SMC Tiger
CardTM 10G server adapter family makes it the best solution for
In today’s challenging data center environment, thermal management
is a hot topic. With the industry’s lowest power consumption, the
SMC10GPCIe-XFP delivers compelling performance, resulting in a
fl exible server adapter, system and ultimately data center design.
The SMC Tiger Card™ 10G VNIC architecture provides the most effi cient way to maximize network and CPU effi ciency. The excellent performance of the SMC Tiger Card™ 10G supports iSCSI SANs and high-performance storage cluster interconnects, enabling cost effective and scalable network storage solutions. The SMC10GPCIe-XFP is a half-height card with brackets for half- or full- height, which offers fl exibility for server installation.
The SMC Tiger Card™ 10G Server Adapter family delivers the balance of performance, power and price. This balance is driving the widespread adoption of 10-gigabit Ethernet throughout data centers and enterprise networks world-wide. *XFP module sold separately
