ConnectX-3 10/40GbE

ConnectX-3 10/40GbE adapters for VMware ESXi 5.0 feature Multiple Physical Function (MPF) capabilities that enable users to achieve higher efficiency by running more jobs per second over their existing infrastructure. MPF allows each port of the ConnectX-3 10/40GbE adapter to present itself as multiple, individual physical NICs and to assign different bandwidth and priority to each physical NIC for different traffic types or functionality such as management, storage, VMotion and networking. With up to 4 virtual NICs per port, MPF delivers flexible allocation of bandwidth and eliminates the need to dedicate a real NIC for each traffic type. This capability reduces space, power and overall complexity by up to 4X, while maintaining a simplified management model and overall data center reliability.
