Kool Tools: Sonnet PCI Express Network Adapter Cards


Sonnet Technologies' Presto 10GbE 1-Port and Presto 10GbE Server 2-Port 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) PCIe cards enable users to connect their computers and servers to high-speed infrastructure and storage systems using the 10GbE standard, which offers up to 10 times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet.

Both Presto 10GbE network adapters are low-profile x8 PCIe adapter cards that install easily into the PCIe slot of a computer or Thunderbolt-to-PCIe expansion chassis. Both cards connect to a switch or other 10GbE interface via fiber-optic or copper cable (sold separately).

Data centers are adopting the 10GbE standard increasingly for wired networking and specialized applications such as HD video editing using high-performance shared storage systems, but no Macs offer this interface option. Sonnet's Presto 10GbE 1-Port and Presto 10GbE Server 2-Port 10GbE PCIe cards are designed for high-performance computing for which low latency, high bandwidth, and low CPU overhead are required.

Their increased throughput performance and low-host CPU utilization are achieved with stateless offloads, so your Mac can perform better while large files transfers or high-I/O operations take place. Sonnet offers either short-range (up to 300 meters) or long-range (up to 10 kilometers) SFP+ transceivers for the Presto 10GbE cards, as well as the ability to use cost-effective direct-attach copper (up to seven meters). Both cards are easily configured using either the OS X Network control panel.

The Presto 10GbE 1-Port card is suited for most applications, while the Presto 10GbE Server 2-Port card is suited for use in servers and in applications where redundancy is critical. When used with a Mac computer, it also supports link aggregation.

The Presto 10GbE 1-Port (part number G10E-SFP-E) and Presto 10GbE Server 2-Port (part number G10E-SFP-2X-E2) cards, and the 10GBase-SR SFP+ (part number G10E-SFP-SR) and 10Base-LR SFP+ (part number G10E-SFP-LR) transceivers are available now.

Sorry about that headline, but I'm going to go ahead and assume that GameResort would not have named its game NinjAwesome without expecting some of that. It is, in fact, pretty awesome the way it combines an endless runner and old school arcade style action, so the adjective is properly used here. [Read more] | Read more »
