Unsurpassed performance, simplified management and superior reliability
Customers today are challenged to utilize their IT resources as fully as possible, requiring virtualization of server hardware. In the past, the bottleneck to virtualization has been I/O bandwidth, thereby hindering application performance.
The QLogic 16 Gb FC Host Bus Adapters boast industryleading native FC performance—achieving dual-port, line-rate, 16 Gb FC throughput—at extremely low CPU usage, with full
hardware offloads. This extreme performance eliminates potential I/O bottlenecks in today’s powerful multiprocessor servers.
Superior application performance
With support for more than 1.2 million I/O transactions per second, these adapters deliver outstanding storage application performance in virtualized and nonvirtualized environments.
These adapters support standards-based virtualization features such as N_port ID virtualization (NPIV).
The adapters are compatible with the same FC software driver stack that has been tested and validated across all major hardware platforms, all major hypervisors and Operating
Systems, and has been battle-hardened in millions of previous installations.
QLogic’s new unified management application, QConvergeConsole (QCC), provides single-pane-of-glass management for the company’s broad product line of storage and networking adapters (FC, converged networking, NIC and iSCSI).
