Get to Know RoCE
Promotion Dates:
40GbE Packs a Punch with RoCE Get faster throughput and greater bandwidth by combining 40GbE with RoCE For customers who find 10GbE products just don’t provide sufficient bandwidth for applications across both IT and M&E environments, 40GbE connectivity solutions can provide the extra boost to get the job done.   However, due to inherent latency introduced by TCP/IP, latency-reducing direct memory technologies like RoCE must be implemented to achieve near line rate 40GbE performance. In addition to providing the extra bandwidth, RoCE frees up the CPU for mission-critical tasks while also ensuring a high ROI on the amount of data transferred per dollar spent on power.   Reasons to consider 40GbE with RoCE: Allows for maximization of 40GbE investments by ensuring near line-rate performance (39 Gb/s on RoCE compared with 20-25 Gb/s on traditional TCP/IP) Lowers overall TCO and OPEX by transferring up to 116% more data per dollar spent on power consumption than competitors The industry’s first OS X drivers for 40GbE NICs are slated to arrive in Q3 2016
