The Cisco UCS 1497 Virtual Interface Card is a datacenter platform that unites computing, networking, storage access and virtualization resources in a cohesive system designed to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and increase business agility. It extends the network fabric directly to both servers and virtual machines so that a single connectivity mechanism can be used to connect both physical and virtual servers with the same level of visibility and control. This card supports a 40/100 Gb/s Ethernet protocol for seamless connectivity. For enhanced usage, it can present PCIe standards-compliant interfaces to the host, and these can be dynamically configured as NICs or HBAs.
