Oracle's Sun Dual Port 10 GbE PCIe 2.0 Networking Cards with SFP+ pluggable transceivers, which incorporate the Intel 82599 10GbE Controller deliver outstanding performance in virtualized environments for network intensive applications requiring higher I/O bandwidth.

Advanced Networking Features for Sun Blade and Rack Servers

Multi-core and virtualized server environments are driving the need for greater networking performance. By efficiently load-balancing interrupts across CPU cores, these dual port 10 Gigabit Ethernet networking cards eliminate bottlenecks for high-performance applications in the data center. Implementation of Data Center Bridging standards for lossless and low latency Ethernet, FCoE support, along with innovations in Oracle Solaris enables data centers to converge server-to-server, server-to-storage and server-to-LAN communications onto a single Ethernet fabric.

Built-in Virtualization Technology

Server virtualization may reduce the number of physical servers, but it increases the demands placed on the network requiring additional capacity, capabilities and devices. Virtual networking capabilities are becoming increasingly important with the growing use of virtual machines, distributed applications, and cloud infrastructures.

Oracle's 10GbE SFP+ Ethernet networking cards can be deployed with SR-IOV, for OS supporting SR-IOV, in order to gain direct access to networking hardware for up to 128 virtual machines per networking card. Direct access to hardware from virtual machine environments increases performance and reduces the number of required adapters, cables, and switch ports. Additional hardware-based capabilities deliver I/O virtualization and quality-ofservice features that eliminate bottlenecks and improves overall application performance.

In addition, Oracle Solaris implements zero overhead server virtualization and Edge Virtual Bridging in order to improve both VM performance and improve traffic forwarding between VMs.

Advanced networking and virtualization capabilities incorporated in Oracle Solaris and Oracle VM optimize database and application performance. These capabilities include:

  • Hardware accelerated traffic classification for Oracle Solaris 11 network virtualization with zones
  • Support for multiple Tx and Rx rings for improved scalability
  • Dynamic polling in the Oracle Solaris 11 in order to reduce the interrupt rate and improvesystem efficiency
  • Oracle Solaris Zones for Oracle x86/x64 or SPARC T-Series servers
  • Edge Virtual Bridging for improving traffic forwarding between VMs
  • Centralized, automated network configuration: pool-level bridging, bonding, VLAN, multipathing
  • Oracle VM Server for x86 3.0.2: network separation isolates traffic for management, live migration, and cluster heartbeat, storage, and virtual machines
  • Improved network and OS security with separate instances of virtual operating environments
Converged Networking and Storage Technology
  • Simplify the network infrastructure by allowing LAN, Storage (FC, iSCSI, NFS) and IPC traffic to share the same a single Ethernet fabric.
