QLogic 3000 Series Fibre Channel Switches
Q Logic 3000 Series FC SAN Switches
A leg up in performance from the QLogic 1000 series, the QLogic 3000 series of Fibre Channel (FC) Storage Area Network (SAN) switches feature an aggregated bandwidth of 8 Gigabits per second (Gbps) as well as 8 GB Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) ports – all within the same space-efficient 1U form factor. And while they are 8 Gbps SAN switches, one of the advantages that the QLogic 3000 series offers is backwards compatibility, which allows them to work with both 4 Gbps and 2 Gbps devices by means of non-blocking ports that feature auto-sensing and auto-negotiation capabilities. Other advantages of QLogic 3000 SAN switches include I/O StreamGuard and N-Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) support, which server to protect critical streaming applications from interruptions as well as to enable a single Host Bus Adapter (HBA) to house multiple N-Port IDs and to endow QLogic 3000 switches with a high level of cost-efficiency.
Other features that make QLogic 3000 series FC switches a step above performance-wise include drag and drop zoning, as well as QuickTools on-board Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Command Line Interface (CLI) for an easy-to-use interface as well as streamlined administration and management capabilities. And with configuration wizards assisting you with the initial set-up, QLogic 3000 switches are easy-to-use every step of the way. And when QLogic 3000 SAN switches are charged with the critical task of routing data between servers and disk arrays within the SAN, it’s important that the process is as simple, and streamlined as possible to eliminate any potential bottlenecks that can drive down performance. However, all of the many advantageous features pile up to deliver best-in0class performance and rock-solid reliability, ensuring for a fast, efficient data flow as well as a high level of availability for your single-switch FC SAN.
