What's inside your server can upgrade your entire network.

Inside every server is an opportunity.

Now Is the Time to Choose 10GbE

Today's IT managers are pressured to deliver more, faster, and always, for less. At the same time, legacy infrastructures and complex networks are running on a plethora of underutilized servers, cables, and switches, making it extremely challenging for IT to respond quickly to changing business needs. An efficient solution is to start consolidating servers and applications, and unifying networks for a virtualized environment. However, as IT managers make these improvements to allow more processes and applications, the network itself becomes the bottleneck. Now, there's an easier way to upgrade network performance and agility to meet the needs of an efficient virtualized datacenter.

The ecosystem is ready to deliver and support 10GbE solutions across your network. Take advantage of the power efficiency and performance of affordable 10GbE networking. Servers connecting with the latest Intel® Ethernet-based 10GbE Converged Network Adapters provide up to 10x faster performance,^ and the agility to align with business growth, meet customers' needs, or expand with your business.
