QNAP Launches Dual-Port 25 GbE Network Card

QNAP, today launched the QXG-25G2SF-CX6 - a 25 GbE PCIe Gen 4 (compatible with PCIe Gen 3/Gen 2) network expansion card with an NVIDIA Mellanox ConnectX -6 Lx SmartNIC. Compatible with QNAP NAS and Windows /Linux PCs, the QXG-25G2SF-CX6 provides a convenient way to upgrade your storage and workstations to benefit from next-generation networking.

With two 25 GbE ports, the QXG-25G2SF-CX6 supports up to 50 Gbps when used in a Port Trunking configuration - perfect for the most demanding storage environments that require intensive data transfer. With SR-IOV and RoCE support, where a network can be accessed directly in RAM, VMware virtualization environments can greatly benefit from reduced latency and enhanced performance and efficiency. The QXG-25G2SF-CX6 is perfectly suited for QNAP NAS solutions such as the TS-h3088XU-RP All-Flash NAS to take full advantage of the incredible bandwidth potential. You can also consider pairing the QXG-25G2SF-CX6 with a QNAP Switch to build a budget-friendly high-speed network environment.
Drivers are required when using the QXG-25G2SF-CX6 in Windows and Linux. Drivers are not required when the QXG-25G2SF-CX6 is installed in a QNAP NAS with QTS 4.5.2/ QuTS hero h4.5.2 (or later).

Availability & Pricing

The QNAP QXG-25G2SF-CX6 is now available to purchase from the QNAP Accessory store for 307 USD.

Have to wonder about usefulness to the creator and power user. IIRC, Infiniband and Ethernet both will do Switchless point-to-point, a ring config.
