    • Hi,
      Thank you for comment.
      Mezzanine is like an expansion card and includes more options compare to FLB card.
      There is the below options are available for Blade server as mezzanine:
      Dual-port 20Gb FlexFabric, Dual-port 10Gb FlexFabric, and 10GbE options.
      Dual-port 16Gb Fibre Channel HBA for SAN connectivity.
      QDR and FDR InfiniBand for low latency and high bandwidth server interconnectivity.
      I/O accelerator mezzanine options for high transaction rate local storage.

      But FLB just offers you: Dual-port FlexFabric or Dual-port Ethernet.

        for exactly what purpose we use FLB adapters and Mezzanine cards in server blade ?

        Thanks in advance.

        • Hi,
          FLB is a FlexFabric adapter which can be used for network and storage connection (FC, FCoE, iSCSI)
          Mezzanine is a type of PCI cards with specific connection, it can be FlexFabric or converged adapter or HBA or other types.
