Dual Rail Gigabit card

Four Rail Gigabit card

Integrity server ready
AlphaServer system ready

The Dual Rail and Four Rail Gigabit cards are hardware upgrade cards for OpenVMS AlphaServer and Integrity systems that provide two or four Gigabit Ethernet communication ports. These controllers offer the exceptional performance of fiber and copper Gigabit Ethernet with backward compatibility to 10/100 megabit Ethernet. They do not interfere with existing 100 megabit Ethernet ports and are designed for easy plug-and-play installation utilizing an available 64 bit PCI or PCI-X slot.

The industry-leading clustering and networking capabilities and rock-solid reliability of HP OpenVMS AlphaServer and Integrity systems make them ideal platforms for building high-speed Ethernet networks. The Dual/Four Rail Gigabit cards, which were jointly engineered by HP and Nemonix Engineering in response to OpenVMS user demand, greatly increase the connectivity and bandwidth of AlphaServer systems and Integrity servers enabling larger, faster clusters and networks of OpenVMS systems to improve IT productivity and increase return on investment.
