Deploy a high-performance converged network adapter with the Cisco UCS M81KR and Cisco UCS P81E Virtual Interface Card (VIC).This adapter was developed from the beginning to provide acceleration for the various new operational modes introduced by server virtualization. In virtualized environments, this highly configurable and self-virtualized adapter provides:
- Near Bare-metal I/O performance
- Ease of management
- Exceptional network visibility
The M81KR and P81E are the first implementation of Cisco VM-FEX technology in hardware. VM-FEX collapses virtual and physical networking into a single, easy-to-manage networking domain.
The M81KR and P81E are also the industry's first implementation of VMware VMDirectPath technology, which allows it to:
- "Pass through" the hypervisor layer
- Provide near-bare metal performance for unified computing systems
