QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking, and storage solution innovator, today launched the QXG-100G2SF-CX6 dual-port 100GbE PCIe 4.0 expansion card. Featuring an NVIDIA Mellanox® ConnectX-6 Dx controller, the QXG-100G2SF-CX6 can be installed in a QNAP all-flash NAS or Windows®/Linux® workstations/servers to provide up to 200Gbps total throughput. The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 is suited for overcoming performance bottlenecks with incredibly low-latency in bandwidth-demanding applications including data centers, virtualization, multimedia streaming/transfer, and mission-critical backup/restore tasks.
“Server efficiency and virtualization density drive the growing demands for higher bandwidth, and the QXG-100G2SF-CX6 network expansion card provides an accessible solution for upgrading to 100GbE network environments to boost performance and reduce latency,“ said Andy Chuang, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 is a feature-rich networking solution with advanced technologies for lowering CPU workloads, making it ideal for I/O-intensive, latency-sensitive virtualization and enterprise-class storage applications.”
The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 is ideal for unleashing the full potential of QNAP’s NVMe all-flash NAS, including the TS-h2490FU, TDS-h2489FU, and TS-h1290FX that feature PCIe Gen 4 slot(s) for industry-leading throughput, low latency, and high message rate. It can be paired with high-speed switches to enable faster data transfer and network efficiency with the unmatched performance of RDMA, RoCE v1/v2, and SR-IOV (1K VFs & 8 PFs). The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 also supports Windows Server® (2016 or 2019) and Linux platforms.
