Intel(R) I/O Acceleration Technology


Intel I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel(R) I/OAT) is a new Intel platform network technology that accelerates, optimizes and seamlessly scales enterprise servers on Microsoft Windows Server* and Linux* operating systems.

Seamless multiple port scaling gives you increased networking throughput from teaming along with reliable server and application availability.
