Customers who wish to make a warranty claim must comply with the manufacturer's instructions and warranty procedure. In order to resolve your problem as quickly as possible, we may refer you to the product manufacturer who will deal directly with the return. In these instances, we will provide you with the contact information for the relevant manufacturer. If you are a consumer, this does not affect your statutory rights In the event that First Shop, at its discretion agrees to accept the return for credit of unwanted products, the goods must be returned with First Shop's prior written agreement within 14 days of delivery. The goods must be unopened and in perfect re-saleable condition. All goods returned in these circumstances will be subject to a handling fee of 15% of First Shop's sale price for the goods, or R250, whichever is the greater. Subject to testing to verify any alleged fault, we will accept the return of defective goods for full refund or replacement at our option, if, but only if, the goods are returned within 14 days of delivery. Consumers who wish to return defective products are not obliged to follow the processes set out below, but are recommended to do so as this helps us to provide a more efficient returns service. Some manufacturers require goods to be returned within 14 days or less in order to secure refund. In such instances the manufacturer's time limit will apply and therefore First Shop will only accept a return within 14 days of purchase or the manufacturer's time limit, if that limit is less than 14 days. This is clearly indicated on the catalogue page for the particular product. We can only accept the return of a defective product that does not meet the description, if they are returned to us within 14 days. Beyond that period you will be deemed to have accepted the goods and you must therefore check the goods promptly on receipt. Please note that this period is reduced to 7 days for clearance bargain Promotions/Deals FirstShop


HPE FlexFabric 556FLR-SFP+ - network - 732456-B21

The HP 556FLR-SFP+ is high performance dual-port 10GbE adapter for HP ProLiant Gen9 rack servers. The form factor for the 556FLR-SFP+ is a FlexibleLOM, or modular LAN on motherboard (LOM).
The HP 556FLR-SFP+ and CN1200E adapters offer more scalable virtualization with support for enhanced Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), RoCE, Virtual Connect Flex-10 port partitioning and next-generation overlay networking technologies that address the requirements of virtual machine (VM) mobility and massive scaling of Layer 2 subnets inside private or hybrid cloud infrastructures.
  • Accelerated Microsoft applications performance with SMB Direct with RoCE support
    RDMA reduces CPU utilization and data latency and improves throughput by bypassing the host TCP/IP stack. SMB Direct RoCE leverages Converged Ethernet, also known as Data Center Bridging (DCB), as a lossless physical layer networking medium. The RoCE architecture removes the TCP/IP stack and a data copy step. This technology works by seamlessly sensing, without user action or intervention, the presence of an SMB Direct RDMA compliant adapter and switching from standard TCP/IP networking to SMB Direct mode.
  • Flexible storage connectivity using FCoE and iSCSI hardware offloads
    The HP FlexibleLOM and PCIe adapters support FCoE offload using the same field-proven Emulex drivers that work with Emulex LightPulse Fiber Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs). They also support hardware iSCSI offload, delivering performance that is superior to iSCSI solutions based on software initiators and standard NICs. Finally 10GbE FlexibleLOM and PCIe adapters also have the ability to support NIC and iSCSI or FCoE offloads on the same physical port. The 556FLR-SFP+ and CN1200E adapters support storage connectivity, with support for up to three functions per port when connected to a switch that supports Data Center Bridging (DCB). Each port can be configured as one NIC function, one NIC function and one iSCSI or FCoE function, or one NIC function, one iSCSI function, and one FCoE function.
  • Optimized host server virtualization density using SR-IOV
    SR-IOV optimizes I/O for VMs, enabling higher host server virtualization ratios to deliver maximum server return on investment (ROI). SR-IOV provides a more cost-effective solution than multiple physical adapter ports. SR-IOV enables multiple VMs to directly access the HP adapters’ I/O resources, thus allowing the VM’s network I/O to bypass the hypervisor’s virtual switch and take a path directly between the VM and the adapter, eliminating redundant I/O processing in the hypervisor. This, in turn, allows higher I/O performance and lower CPU utilization as compared to the alternative of software-emulated NIC devices that are implemented in the hypervisor.
  • Simplified management using a host of HP management tools including HP OneView or Emulex OneCommand Manager application
    The HP FlexibleLOM and PCIe adapters support both HP as well as Emulex management tools. HP OneView provides fast, efficient, secure local and remote deployment, configuration and update capabilities. The Emulex OneCommand Manager application provides centralized management of HP adapters based on Emulex OneConnect CNAs and LightPulse HBAs throughout the data center from a single management console. The OneCommand Manager application provides a graphical user interface (GUI) and a scriptable command line user interface (CLI). OneCommand Manager for VMware is fully integrated with VMware vCenter, enabling “single pane of glass” management for VMware deployments.
  • Enterprise-class performance and reliability
    Leveraging four generations of advanced, field-proven controller and adapter technology, the HP FlexibleLOM and PCIe adapters meet the robust interoperability and reliability requirements of enterprise cloud and scale-out data centers.
