Add-on Card

The Supermicro AOC-S100G-m2C provides exceptionally high performance at 100Gb/s Ethernet connectivity. Utilizing the Mellanox ConnectX®-4 EN chipset with features that such as VXLAN and NVGRE, this card offers network flexibility, high bandwidth with specific hardware offload for I/O virtualization, and efficiently optimizes bandwidth demand from virtualized infrastructure in the data center or cloud deployments. The AOC-S100G-m2C supports the RoCE specification with CPU offload, delivering low-latency and high-efficiency over Ethernet networks. Supermicro® Asset Management and thermal detection provide an extra layer of controller health management and peace of mind. The Supermicro AOC-S100G-m2C is the building block of choice for the next generation of high speed Ethernet data center networks.

This product is only available through Supermicro.
