    Abstract

    The IBM Flex System™ EN4132 2-port 10Gb RoCE Adapter for Power Systems compute nodes delivers high bandwidth and provides RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) for low latency application requirements. Clustered DB2 databases, web infrastructure, and high frequency trading are just a few applications that achieve significant throughput and latency improvements, resulting in faster access, real-time response, and more users per server. This adapter improves network performance by increasing available bandwidth while decreasing the associated transport load on the processor.

    Tip: Do not confuse this adapter with the EN4132 2-port 10Gb Ethernet Adapter. These are two separate adapters.

    Changes in the October 23 update:

    * Added the x240 M5 compute node to Table 2
