I'm looking at building my first freenas Storage server to store finished projects and edit directly out of. I've decided to go about DIYing it after being unimpressed by the performance/price of Synology and QNAP solutions. My goal for this build was to come up with a more...
I think that's what it's called?
This is in my dmesg

Has anybody used this card? It's an awesome card on paper, that supports both Fibre Channel 16G and 10GBE, but I haven't been able to find much mention of it online. The QLE2462. QLE2562, etc. products dominate the searches. So I'm hoping to find someone with some experience with the cards to...
Hi All, thanks in advance for any help.
I am trying to setup a 10gbe PFSense server on some Supermicro hardware that I bought on eBay. I am trying to figure out if I have enough PCIe lanes for both the 10gbe NIC and a Samsung 970 evo in one of these enclosures. Any thoughts?
I have the following for sale:
3x Half Low profile bracket for Dell Chelsio T520-CR T520-SO-CR T420-CR HTTG1 card

I painted the LP bracket black. I'll include a fresh clean LP bracket.
I've always ever had a single wireless router in my environment, but as I get into servers that start to serve larger amounts of data and have insecure Internet of Things devices in my network, I think it's time to get into VLAN capable switches and a pfSense firewall.
I don't think I...
I have a homelab setup that consists of a box running FreeNAS serving iSCSI to 2xDL380e Gen8's. I've been using "MT26448 [ConnectX EN 10GigE , PCIe 2.0 5GT/s]" cards, these were ConnectX-2 HP branded single SFP+ port cards. They will not function in ESXi 7.0 as they function as a "legacy"...
I was wondering wich cards should I buy.
Stumbled across a pair of Mellanox ConnectX-2 on the ebay for 99€.
My goal ist using them with my Windows 10 Workstation (Threadripper 1900X, MSI X399 Carbon AC build) and my Homeserver (Xeon E5-2620v3 on SuperMicro X10SRi-F).
Just a single P2P...

(eBay) New CRS317-1G-16S+RM Cloud Router Switch Mikrotik, 16x SFP+, 1x Gbit Lan
Best offered $265, seller counteroffered at $268.88.
For my needs I think this switch is awesome - it's super low power (like, double digits afaik). So, you could grab a sweet used Brocade/Dell/etc for a steal...
I am planning to upgrade my home lab and need your advice on 10GbE switch.
Low power assumption and low noise. I have my rack in the living room so it is important
8 or more SFP+ ports
L2 features like VLAN, jumbo frame
Support DAC cable
Optionally L3 static routing
i just got a Quanta LB8 Switch with 48 SFP+ Ports. The Problem is that my whole network is currently 1G copper (but i have 4 SFP uplinks on my switch).
I need a simple way to integrate my "new" 10G Switch into my network. I thought SFP modules would work in a SFP+ port but i seems...
I just bought a second AOC-STG-I2 for my VMWare lab - one of the few old (read: cheap) 10GbE cards still properly supported by ESXi.
I'm pretty excited about it, but it's got a half-height bracket and I have a full-height slot.
Does anyone know where I might get a full-height bracket...
I ordered some SFP-H10GB-CU3M compatible (supposedly) DACs from fs.com, and although they're nice and thin, and work with my Mellanox Connectx-3 cards in my NAS', they are not compatible with my P81E 10GbE cards in my UCS servers. Can anyone recommend a good DAC in 3-5m distances to connect my...
I've been working on a Supermicro SYS-E300-9A (Intel Atom C3858,) putting together a fully virtualized router + whatever, and I'm getting around to being complete. The last step for me is routing my existing 10gbit setup through it, but I've hit a snag.
My NAS has a Mellanox ConnectX-2 card...
I was thinking, for my living room where I have quite a few servers running (silent !), to do a custom 10gbe IPoIB setup. In my lab room I could use the Voltaire 4036 (non-E version unfortunately) which I still need to find a way to silence. It's way too noisy even for the server...
I have the opportunity to purchase some used dual-port Mellanox MCX354A-QCBT ConnectX-3 cards with VPI network adapter. (10 GbE Ethernet and 40 Gbps InfiniBand.) These would be perfect for my cluster after correct configuration..
They were originally pulled from EMC systems and...
I need to build a server with a port to connect a 1Gbps single mode fiber. There seems to be little PCI-e cards available that offer 2 ports (i'm looking for either 2 or 4 ports for expansion) SFP cages where I can use any optics.
Question is, will a 10GbE nic work with SFP optics (instead...
UPDATE 7/11/2018 - It's been discovered that the version 8 Brocade firmware originally on the site was an internal-use only, untested beta version. It has been removed from the guide and replaced with the latest v7 mainstream release which is rock stable, well tested and has had a few more...
Hopefully the attached image gives a good idea of the setup I have in mind (blue cable is 1GbE). I have yet to buy the items in red and I'm looking for recommendations.
What I have found so far is:
2xSFP+ switch = D-Link DGS-1510-20 ~= £180
SFP+ NIC = StarTech PEX10000SFP ~= £175
