NOTE: This is a list of supported servers. Some may be discontinued.
Gigabit Throughput Combined with Legacy Ethernet Support
10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet transfer rate delivers outstanding network performance that improves response time and removes bottlenecks. Because the NC360T supports both 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet in addition to Gigabit Ethernet, users are guaranteed end-to-end protocol support across their enterprise.
PCI Express Interface
HP was an early champion of PCI Express bus technology and has played a key role in the development and industry adoption of the PCI Express specification. The NC360T features a high performance Intel 82571EB chipset and offers a four lane (x4) PCI Express bus based on the PCIe v1.0a standard, yielding faster transmissions with lower CPU utilization than earlier solutions.
Transmit Load Balancing (TLB) and Switch-assisted Load Balancing (SLB) are two advanced features that customers can use to build a bigger pipe for improved networking bandwidth. These port bonding techniques enable users to install up to four dual-port NC360T adapters (total of 8 ports) in a HP ProLiant server and aggregate their throughput up to a theoretical maximum of 16 Gigabits per second full-duplex transmissions.
Jumbo Frames (also known as Extended Frames) offer a 9K byte Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU), which is six times the size of traditional Ethernet frames. Like all HP ProLiant server adapters, the NC360T supports jumbo frames as a way to achieve higher throughput and better CPU utilization when deployed in a network infrastructure that supports them. Jumbo frames are particularly useful for database transfers and tape backups.
Scalability and Reliability
Two Gigabit ports allow users to save slots in situations where their servers are slot-constrained. HP has long been an advocate of dual port adapters for servers; the NC360T is the latest in our legacy of best-of-breed dual port devices for HP ProLiant servers.
Network Fault Tolerance (NFT)
Network Fault Tolerance, sometimes called failover or NIC Redundancy, allows for the installation of multiple server adapters so that the active device can be backed up by a redundant adapter to improve availability. HP’s teaming utility also allows users to specify that when a failed adapter is fixed and replaced, the original adapter resumes its function as the primary network connection.
