QLogic 1000 Series Fibre Channel Switches
QLogic 1000 Series SAN Switches
The QLogic 1000 series of Fibre Channel (FC) Storage Area Network (SAN) switches are configured in a space-efficient 1U form factor for the convenience of small to medium enterprise environments that may be spatially challenged compared to large corporations, but still want the same level of performance. While the QLogic 1000 series are entry-level FC switches, they offer performance features that defy both their entry-level status and small form factor. Just a few of these highly-acclaimed performance features include non-disruptive code load and activation, in-band or out-of-band Telnet and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) management, as well as I/O StreamGuard for Registered State Change Notification (RSCN) suppression and comprehensive operating system (OS) support for systems including Cisco, Dell, IBM, Microsoft, Sun and more. And with auto-negotiation and auto-sensing capabilities as well, QLogic 1000 switches feature backwards compatibility – allowing them to interact with older generations such as 2 Gigabits per second (Gbps) and 1 Gbps.
As fixed-configuration SAN switches, the QLogic 1000 series feature an aggregated bandwidth of up to 4 Gbps, as well as up to 10 Gb Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) ports. And what’s more, the QLogic 1000 series offers the ability to mount 2 switches side-by-side in the same rack slot. So not only do they get a buddy, you get the benefit of 20 Gigabits per second (Gbps) in a 1U rack slot – how’s that for a deal? Even better, QLogic 1000 series FC switches are cost-effective solutions to your enterprise data center needs, and feature simple configuration wizards so that they’re not only easy on your wallet, but easy to use and implement as well. Additional benefits of QLogic 1000 series SAN switches include broad interoperability capabilities as well as high reliability, which will allow you to get the maximum availability from your FC SAN, and proven performance, eliminating bottlenecks and providing a quick and efficient flow of data.
