Intel® Ethernet Server Bypass Adapter X520 family is known for high performance, low latency, reliability, and flexibility. The addition of the Intel® Ethernet Server Bypass Adapter X520-SR2 and the Intel® Ethernet Server Bypass Adapter X540-T2 delivers all of the 10GbE performance in addition to business continuity in the event of a network failure.
The bypass capability removes a single point of failure so that essential business communication can continue while a system issue is diagnosed and resolved. In the event of a power, hardware, or software failure, bypass will automatically activate, allowing network traffic to continue.
