QNAP QXG-100G2SF-CX6 Dual-Port 100GbE Network Expansion Card

Achieve a total throughput of up to 200 Gb/s and overcome performance bottlenecks with the Dual-Port 100GbE Network Expansion Card from QNAP. Powered by an NVIDIA Mellanox ConnectX-6 Dx controller and PCIe 4.0, this expansion card also supports offload functionality that includes RDMA, RoCE v1/v2, and SR-IOV (1K VFs & 8 PFs), all of which allow it to boost network efficiency, making it well suited for I/O-intensive and latency-sensitive virtualization and data centers. It is also a good match for all-flash storage, so you can reach a higher performance potential for ever-demanding IT challenges.
Supports NAS and PC OS
QNAP Network Expansion Cards support NAS operating systems (QTS and QuTS hero), Windows 10, Windows Server, and Linux, allowing you to expand the performance potential of all your networked devices.
Pair with High-Speed Switches for High-Performance, Low-Latency Data Transfer
The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 network expansion card can be connected to a switch with QSFP28 cables or transceiver, for an incredible total throughput of up to 200GbE.
100GbE to 100GbE with More NAS
Connect two or more NAS systems installed with the QXG-100G2SF-CX6 to a 100GbE switch to form a high-speed storage environment.
Up to 200GbE of Total Bandwidth
Connect two 100GbE ports on the QXG-100G2SF-CX6 to a 100GbE or faster switch for obtaining 200GbE of maximum total bandwidth.
Unleash the Full Potential of the NVMe All-Flash NAS
Install the QXG-100G2SF-CX6 in an NVMe all-flash NAS (TS-h2490FU, TDS-h2489FU, and TS-h1290FX) that features PCIe Gen 4 x16 slot(s) to fully realize 100 Gb/s performance and eliminate bottlenecks in modern data centers, virtualization, cloud applications, and mission-critical backup/restore tasks.
Supports SR-IOV for Improved Network Efficiency
The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 supports SR-IOV which can allocate bandwidth resources from a physical network card directly to VMs. It ensures reliable VM applications and reduced CPU overheads.
Smart NIC SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualization)
By installing an SR-IOV compatible PCIe SmartNIC, you can allocate bandwidth resources from a physical network card directly to VMs. With traffic bypassing the Hypervisor vSwitch, it helps enhance I/O throughout and network efficiency, ensuring reliable VM applications and reduced CPU overheads.
Supports RoCE for Reduced Latency and Enhanced Performance for VM Environments
The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 supports RoCE, which can access a network directly in RAM to effectively reduce latency and enhance performance and efficiency for VMware virtualization environments.
Supports iSER for Improved VM Performance
The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 supports iSER, combining iSCSI and RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access), which can bypass general network drivers, the socket layer, and to directly enter memory buffers of the server and storage. Response time is also reduced to ensure service quality of the NAS.
Ensure Reliable Data Transfer with Forward Error Correction (FEC)
The QXG-100G2SF-CX6 supports FEC to overcome packet loss - a potentially common occurrence in fast, long-distance networks. FEC helps the receiving side detect and recover lost data to correct bit errors, thus ensuring reliable data transmission over "noisy" communication channels. With three FEC modes, you can use a suitable cable and switch to build an optimal network environment.

Note: The transmitter (source) and the destination (receiver) must use the same mode.
Supports Windows and Linux Servers/Workstations
Besides QNAP devices, the QXG-100G2SF-CX6 supports many platforms (including Windows Server 2016 and 2019, and Linux/Ubuntu), allowing you to attain optimal business performance for a wider range of system applications and services. The higher bandwidth density with reduction in links helps reduce cabling footprint and operational costs.
Faster Server
Faster server connections within data centers accelerate data aggregation and operational performance.
Denser Compute
Boost the productivity of compute-demanding tasks such as cloud computing, virtual machines, containers, and more.
Bigger Data
Empower the movement of large files from surveillance streams, 4K/8K media, Internet of Things, and more.

Note: Always consult the compatibility list before purchasing add-ons and accessories for your NAS. Also, QNAP Network Expansion Cards do not support Wake-On-LAN (WOL).
