Single Root I/O virtualization and sharing specification (SR-IOV). SR-IOV requires corresponding support in the system BIOS and in the operating system. PCI-SIG SR-IOV defines extensions of the PCI Express (PCIe) specification and enables PCI hardware resources to be shared with several system images or Virtual Machines. The new functions for energy efficient Ethernet (EEE) and DMA Coalescing (DMAC) are also supported; this helps to decrease the power consumption of the server itself.
- Based on the Intel 1 GbE LAN Powerville I350 -AM2 chip
- Power Management such as Ethernet Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and DMA Coalescing (DMAC) support
- 10/100/1000 Mbps
- Virtualization support via VMDq and SR-IOV
