The QLogic® QLE2692L Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter Dual-port 16Gb Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) boast native FC performance with extremely low CPU usage with full hardware offloads.
The QLogic solution offers higher per-port performance (up to 650K IOPS) with low power consumption compared to the older generation of FC products. In addition, QLogic StorFusion™ technology delivers streamlined provisioning, guaranteed quality of service (QoS), and improved resiliency while addressing the needs of IT organizations that require reliability, integrated management, and guaranteed network performance. The 16Gb FC technology resolves data center complexities by enabling a storage network infrastructure that supports powerful virtualization features, application-aware services, and simplified management. The QLE2692L FC HBA provides advanced storage networking features capable of supporting the most demanding virtualized and private cloud environments while fully leveraging the capabilities of high-performance 16Gb FC and all-flash arrays (AFAs). Powerful management tools automate and simplify SAN provisioning to help reduce cost and complexity, while the unmatched 16Gbps performance eliminates potential I/O bottlenecks in today’s powerful multiprocessor, multicore servers.
The QLE2692L FC HBA can accelerate mission-critical enterprise applications by delivering up to 1.3 million IOPS for physical, virtual, and private cloud environments. QLogic adapters delivers better storage application performance in virtualized and non-virtualized environments with support for up to 650K I/O transactions per-second per-port.
The QLE2692L FC HBA supports standards-based virtualization features. Support for N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV) enables a single FC adapter port to provide multiple virtual ports for increased network scalability. In addition, the 16Gbps line rate per physical port delivers unmatched storage performance to maximize the number of virtual machines (VMs) per physical server.
