Overview: The HP 366M is a HP BladeSystem c-Class network adapter providing four Gigabit Ethernet ports on a single card saving valuable server mezzanine slots for other purposes. The x4 PCI Express 366M is supported on ProLiant c-Class servers in all mezzanine slots. For Gen8 ProLiant c-Class servers, the 366M is the first quad-port adapter option for c-Class with latest Intel® Ethernet I350 controller With the 366M, up to 96 Gigabit Ethernet ports per c7000 enclosure and 48 per c3000 enclosure are possible.
The four ports provide the highest port density available for BladeSystem servers in a single adapter. The 366M is ideal for virtualization, security, server consolidation, network segmentation, and other server applications requiring maximum throughput and port density in a 1 GbE infrastructure. The total aggregate throughput of 8Gbps full duplex also meets the needs for customers desiring high bandwidth but are not yet ready to move to 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
