Product Details

The QOE2562 is the first dual-port mezzanine Fibre Channel Adapter built for Open Compute Project (OCP) form factor server platforms. Designed to meet enterprise data center business requirements, including support for a large quantity of Fibre Channel ports with a limited availability of PCIe® slots. The QOE2562 adapter delivers better performance and a high level of data protection. The adapter interfaces to the host server with a PCIe Gen2 bus, ensuring no internal performance bottlenecks.

QLogic’s 8Gb adapters meet the requirements of the data center by providing power and virtualization optimization, as well as backwards compatibility with previous 4Gb and 2Gb technology. In addition, the 2500 Series adapters work in both PCI Express® Gen1 and Gen2 host bus interface platforms.

The QOE2562 provides two full-duplex ports of 8Gb Fibre Channel connectivity in an OCP mezzanine form factor. The two-port OCP mezzanine 8G Fibre Channel adapter, the QOE2562 allows for higher port density in PCIe-slot-challenged systems.

The QOE2562 adapter offers dynamic and adaptive power management features such as power- and bandwidth-optimized intelligent PCI Express link training, low-power switching power supplies, and a thermally efficient layout.

The QOE2562 adapter delivers enhanced security and allows multiple logical (virtual) connections to share the same physical port. Each logical connection has its own resources and can be managed independently.
