Cheapest NIC that supports SR-IOV and DPDK ?
I am looking for the cheapest NIC that supports SR-IOV and is DPDK compatible.
Bandwidth 10 Gigabit would do, also 32 VFs per port are more than sufficient. I am willing to spend < 225$.
Dual port NIC looks fine. As I require around 48 VFs ( or single port with 64 VFs). The cheaper the better for now.
Any suggestions ?
Hi Abhishek. I'm not sure of availability of these where you are, but you can try look for Intel X540 or Intel 82599ES network adapters, even 2nd hand would suffice.
Are you running a home virtual lab?
Thanks Ashraf, Looking into it. X540 shipping price is too high on ebay.
Yes, it's for home virtual lab.
