    Choose among dual- and quad-port ThinkServer Ethernet adapters by Intel with speeds of up to 10Gbps. Enjoy the cost savings and convenience of cross-platform compatibility on many ThinkServer series.

    Converged Network Adapter (CNA)

    The ThinkServer converged network adapter by QLogic® supports concurrent LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (FCoE, iSCSI) traffic over a shared 10Gbps Ethernet link. The adapter showcases industry-leading LAN networking performance, full hardware offload for FCoE and iSCSI protocol processing, and an extensive set of features that enhance system virtualization. In addition, this adapter leverages QLogic's existing Fibre Channel and iSCSI drivers, making it one of the most dependable and battle-hardened CNAs on the market.

    Host Bus Adapters (HBAs)

    Available in single- and dual-channel adapters, ThinkServer HBAs by QLogic® and Emulex® offer streamlined installation and management, scalability, and virtualization support — making them ideal for enterprise environments. An integrated processor design minimizes on-board components to improve efficiency and maximizes performance. Advanced error-checking features ensure data integrity.

    Warranty & Service Upgrades

    ThinkServer options are thoroughly tested for compatibility for seamless integration into your ThinkServer system. Best of all, they inherit the base system warranty of the server to which they are installed—including 4-hour service upgrades.
