Ordering Information
Chelsio's T6425-CR is a quad-port, ultra low-latency 1/10/25Gb Ethernet Unified Wire Adapter with a PCI Express 3.0 x8 host bus interface, optimized for storage, cloud computing, HPC, virtualization and other datacenter networking applications.

T6425-CR provides sub micro-second end-to-end latency, while offloading the host CPU from a variety of typical storage, networking, and cloud related protocols. This will enable savings in host CPU acquisition costs, power and operational costs, and dramatically increases system performance.

A large portion of offloads enabled by T6425-CR are based on standard TCP, IP, UDP protocols (such as iSCSI and iWARP), and thus can operate with a software peer, or be replaced with a software solution at lower performance, thus providing the requisite reliability for enterprise customers, and allowing incremental installs in the datacenter. It will work with any legacy switch infrastructure and does not rely on new features such as DCB, PFC, ETS, etc.

T6425-CR supports IEEE standards-based link aggregation/failover features, as well as inter-adapter failover techniques that make it ideal for critical network applications requiring redundancy and high-availability capabilities. It also includes an integrated Traffic Manager and a built-in eSwitch for robust network traffic flow control, traffic classifier, load balancer and firewall capabilities at the port level.

FCoE and iSCSI support in T6425-CR benefit from high reliability features that include memory ECC, data path CRC and T10-DIX offload, in addition to the checksums and CRC available at different protocols layers. High-performance iSCSI and FCoE provide a drop-in replacement upgrade from legacy SANs to converged networks.
