The Emulex LPe1105-HP dual port Fibre Channel HBA provides reliable, high-performance 4 Gb/s connectivity, enabling high-availability to scalable storage in order to meet the needs of your demanding applications and environments. Based on the same field-proven ASIC, firmware, and driver technology as Emulex's renowned LPe1150 HBA, the Emulex LPe1105-HP is fully driver compatible with all Emulex HBAs. HP provides powerful installation software to streamline the installation of the Emulex HBA driver and management applications. As a centralized management suite, HBAnywareT incorporates agent technology that provides discovery, reporting and management of local and remote HBAs. Emulex HBAs feature an exclusive firmware-based architecture, which allows firmware and features to be upgraded without taking the server off-line or re-booting, and without the need to upgrade the driver. This provides investment protection of end user hardware and ensures minimum downtime.
Emulex installation and management tools automate installation and provide local and remote HBA configuration and management, therefore reducing cost of HBA installations across the enterprise. Emulex HBAs feature a firmware upgradeable architecture for long-term investment protection, feature and performance upgrades and seamless backward compatibility. A common driver model among all Emulex HBAs enables a customer to standardize on one driver version across their entire installed base—thus reducing the cost and complexity of managing all HBAs. Emulex HBAs deliver industry-leading reliability levels which minimizes downtime and increases productivity.
The Emulex Service Level Interface (SLI) architecture allows complete independence between HBA hardware, firmware and drivers. That means no reboots during configuration changes and no need for OS specific firmware. This simplifies management and upgrades across multiple generations of HBAs. A centralized management suite, HBAnyware™ provides discovery, reporting and management of local and remote HBAs with both in-band Fibre Channel and out-of-band IP support, enabling remote firmware upgrades and advanced diagnostics from a single console anywhere in the SAN.
The LPe1105-HP delivers high performance levels in real-world application environments, with full-duplex data throughput levels that optimize SAN performance. The exclusive Dynamic Frame Multiplexing ensures consistently superior performance in mixed load environments such as disk and tape back-up.
