The HP 530M is a dual-port 10GbE adapter, featuring the next generation, single-chip 10Gb Ethernet solution from Broadcom in a mezzanine form factor designed for HP BladeSystem c-Class Gen8 servers. The HP 530M FlexibleLOM adapter delivers full line-rate performance across all ports with low power consumption. The HP 530M provides high performance Ethernet connectivity with support for HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 interconnect technology, allowing the benefits of virtualization to extend beyond the server and into the rest of the infrastructure. The HP 530M supports enterprise class features such as VLAN tagging, adaptive interrupt coalescing, MSI-X, NIC teaming (bonding), Receive Side Scaling (RSS), jumbo frames, PXE boot, and virtualization features such as VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ. Support for HP Sea of Sensors Technology enhances server performance while reducing energy use and expense.
- Stateful hardware offload for TCP/IP: TCP Offload Engine (TOE)
- Comprehensive stateless offloads to optimize host efficiency and VM density by leaving host CPU available for other duties
- Support for MSI/MSI-X to provide performance benefits for multi-core servers by load balancing interrupts between CPUs/cores
