The Broadcom 57712-k supports the Dell PowerEdge M710HD Blade server. The Network Daughter Card (NDC) is a flexible LAN-on-motherboard networking solution with integration into embedded management and configuration subsystems. The 57712-k is fully enabled with 10 GbE network interface card (NIC) partitioning (NPAR). The switch independent NPAR technology gives administrators the ability to divide a single network port into as many as four partitions and allocate bandwidth as needed, resulting in optimal resource allocation and lowered infrastructure and operational costs. Increased demand for network and storage connectivity performance is driven by growth of server virtualization coupled with data storage. The Broadcom family of 10 GbE adapters empowers network and data intensive applications such as convergence, digital, and social media content, as well as cloud computing to achieve the desired levels of performance and consolidation.
