Do More, with Less: Accelerating Network Virtualization Overlays with QLogic Intelligent Ethernet Adapters Webcast
ESG Lab recently performed hands-on testing of FastLinQ® 10GbE and 25GbE Adapters, focusing on the performance gains that result from offloading tunneling in conjunction with VXLAN encapsulation. In this webcast, Jack Poller, Senior Lab Analyst, ESG, and Tom Spencer, Senior Director of Product Marketing, QLogic, shared the substantial findings and probable impacts to your data center when tunneling is offloaded from the host CPU to the network adapter, including:

  • Increase data throughput up to 18%* – Improve the performance of user applications
  • Increase CPU efficiency up to 55%* – Reduce the number of servers required to support the same workloads.
