Emulex has developed a Virtual Fabric Adapter based on its OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapter (UCNA) architecture IBM's BladeCenter HS22 blade server family.

The Emulex Virtual Fabric Adapter for IBM BladeCenter offers two physical 10Gb/s Ethernet ports, supporting 1Gb/s or 10Gb/s that can be configured into up to eight virtual ports with bandwidth allocation in 100Mb/s increments. The product can be upgraded to support Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), delivering a future proof connectivity solution for IBM BladeCenter that enables multiple virtual NIC and FCoE ports on the same adapter.

The Emulex OneConnect UCNA platform provides hardware acceleration on a single chip for the major protocols includingTCP/IP, TOE, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). Emulex said OneConnect UCNA supports both IP and storage networking demands.
