The LP10000 is a high performance, single-channel PCI-X Fibre Channel HBA that’s ideally suited for large enterprise or mixed operating system Storage Area Network (SAN) environments. With renowned driver support for Windows, Linux, and Unix operating systems, the LightPulse LP10000 can be effectively applied within a broad range of storage networking solutions.
Emulex is the most trusted name in storage networking connectivity. That’s because each and every Emulex LightPulse HBA leverages five generations of advanced, field-proven technologies to deliver a distinctive set of benefits that the world’s largest enterprises have come to rely on. From their unique firmware upgradeable architecture, to their common driver model, Emulex HBAs are simply “Generations Ahead” of competing solutions.
SUPERIOR QUALITY AND RELIABILITY — Emulex HBAs deliver industryleading
reliability levels by utilizing a field-proven, single-chip design that
minimizes components. Emulex HBAs also use a combination of parity,
CRC, ECC and other advanced error checking methods to verify the integrity of data blocks, which are passed from the host interface through the HBA.
THE MOST EFFICIENT INSTALLATION AND MANAGEMENT — Emulex
management tools automate installation and provide local and remote HBA
configuration and management. Emulex’s unique Service Level Interface
(SLI) architecture allows complete independence of device drivers from HBA hardware and firmware. That means no reboots during most configuration changes and no need for OS specific firmware. A single driver model simplifies management across multiple generations of HBAs. In addition, Emulex HBAs have a firmware-based architecture that enables feature and performance upgrades without costly hardware changes, for long-term investment protection and seamless backward compatibility.
MAXIMUM SAN PERFORMANCE – Emulex HBAs deliver maximum
performance levels in real-world application environments, with superior full-duplex data throughput and I/Os per second. And Emulex’s exclusive Dynamic Frame Multiplexing ensures consistently superior performance in mixed load environments such as disk and tape back-up applications.
THE FASTEST DIAGNOSIS AND RECOVERY — Comprehensive diagnostic
functions, coupled with detailed event logging and tracing, provide for fast, efficient SAN troubleshooting.
THE BROADEST ENTERPRISE DEPLOYMENT — With the largest installed
base of any Fibre Channel HBA supplier, Emulex is trusted by the world’s largest, mission critical enterprises. Long-standing partnerships with leading storage vendors ensure unparalleled compatibility levels.
