Intel E810 Networking Capabilities

Advances in virtualization, high-performance computing, and cloud technologies have opened up extraordinary new possibilities in today's data-centric business landscape. Innovative applications of these technologies can unlock unprecedented new levels of productivity, collaboration, intelligent decision-making, and more. Still, they also require the right underlying infrastructure to perform at the levels that users and organizations relying on them expect.

The Intel Ethernet Network Adapter E810 is specifically designed to meet these expectations. It helps move data faster by optimizing high-performance server workloads on the network and providing the ability to scale up to meet increasing demands over time.

Simple, Fast, and Versatile Deployment

The Intel Ethernet Network Adapter E810 is as versatile as it is powerful, supporting a wide array of system configurations to meet different organizations' workload requirements. The dual- or single-port Intel E810 can be programmed to act as many different physical network adapters with throughput from 1Gbps up to 100Gbps. This variety of available port and speed combinations helps simplify validation and deployment in many different environments.

Addressing the Challenges of Cloud, Networking, and Communications Workloads

Nearly all organizations today are becoming more accustomed to and reliant upon cloud applications to manage their daily operations better. But specific cloud workloads, including intelligent edge services, database applications, web servers, storage targets, and more, can place a massive strain on servers. Similarly, many organizations are beginning to look to advanced communications and networking technologies to run their businesses more effectively. High-bandwidth workloads in these areas, including mobile core, 5G RAN, and network appliances, have proven to be highly demanding as well. To better equip networks to overcome these challenges and provide efficient, workload-optimized performance and faster packet processing, the Intel Ethernet 800 Series employs various powerful technologies.

Built-In Technology for Optimized Performance

Application Device Queues (ADQ) is an advanced traffic steering technology that improves performance scalability and predictability by dedicating queues to crucial workloads. This significantly reduces jitter and facilitates predictable high performance. As jitter is lowered, more compute servers can be assigned to a task, and more users can access the system, providing a highly-improved end-user experience. Dynamic Device Personalization (DDP) is a technology that reduces latency and improves packet processing performance and efficiency for cloud, communications, and network edge workloads. The Intel Ethernet 800 Series firmware loads a DDP profile with many workload-specific protocols at driver initialization to provide a high level of flexibility. With multiple 800 Series adapters present in a system, each adapter's pipeline can be programmed independently with a different DDP profile. Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) technology eliminates three significant sources of networking overhead: TCP/IP stack process, memory copies, and application context switches. By doing so, it improves network performance for low latency, high-throughput workloads. Notably, the Intel 800 Series Network Adapters support the major storage protocols, including iWARP and RocEv2.
