    Features will improve throughout the year as new releases are developed
    Basic delay is testing of iterations; can be quite large (How many guests, what OS, etc)
    Switch Independent Mode will be enabled via a software update in 4Q11
  • 26. Similarities: Emulex VFA II vs. VFA
    Same firmware bundle/version
    Adapter will report 2.x.x.x on VFA and 3.x.x.x on VFA II
    Actual firmware file will be different
    Bootable Media Creator/UXSP will know the differences and apply correct file
    Bootable ISO image will apply correct file
    OneCommand Manager will let you know if you attempt to apply the wrong file
    Naming convention is OC10xxx.ufi for VFA, and OC11xxx.ufi for VFAII
    Same device driver
    Same vNIC features
    May require newer switch software version, 6.5.x; please see readme files, but this is true on VFA or VFA II
  • 27. vEngine Virtual Server Optimization
    Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV)
