Product Details

HPE FC2243 dual-channel 4 Gb PCI-X 2.0 HBAs for Windows now support customers with Integrity and ProLiant Servers that have PCI-X I/O slots in them. FC2243 now gives customers the ability to use the higher performance PCI-X 2.0 I/O bus to connect to their HPE StorageWorks arrays.

HPE FC2243 is a host bus adapter that combine the backward compatibility and high bandwidth of 266 MHz PCI-X 2.0 with exceptional 4 Gb Fibre Channel performance. Emulex HBAs employ a firmware-based architecture and a unique Service Level Interface (SLI) that enable new features and other upgrades without costly adapter hardware changes.

Features

Adds 4 Gb PCI-X 2.0 single and dual channel I/O connectivity to HPE storage arrays:

  • Provides 4Gb SAN connectivity and backward compatibility with 2 Gb and 1 Gb Fibre Channel.

High bandwidth 266 MHz PCI-X 2.0 host bus interface:

  • Compatible with 266 MHz PCI-X 2.0 host buses, while backward compatible with 66, 100 and 133 MHz bus systems.

"No Reboot" firmware based architecture supports high-availability environments:

  • Firmware based architecture allows HBAs to be updated with new features and functions, without disruptive reboots of the host system. The "no reboot" feature enhances critical server environments.

Single driver solution across multiple generations of HBAs:

  • The Emulex based 4 Gb HBAs present a standard interface to the OS that allows the same driver to be used with older generation 2 Gb and even 1Gb HBAs, simplifying SAN management.

Low power consumption:

  • The low power consumption of these new 4 Gb HBAs helps keep the server running cooler and more reliably.
