QLogic 8000 Series Converged Network Adapters

QLogic 8000 Series Converged Network Adapters

As converged network adapters, the QLogic 8000 series offers a screaming fast 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) throughput, as well as host bus support for PCI-E and dual and single port configurations. Now that we’ve piqued your interest (or completely lost you since those three things were all you cared about), we can move on to the bright and shiny features offered by the QLogic 8000 series. But to help out those who have gotten this far and are still asking, but what the heck is a converged network adapter? We’ll start out by explaining their function. Unlike an intelligent network adapter that simply adapts  to match the storage requirements of your enterprise IT environment,  a converged network adapter provides the ability to “split the stream,” meaning that they actually have the ability to split up storage multiple ways – up to 4 ways in a single adapter and up to 8 ways in a dual adapter. Who’s the smart one now?

And now that we’ve explained how converged network adapters work, let’s move on to the specific and amazing features and benefits of the QLogic 8000 series. Just a few examples of these features include the ability to add bandwidth to an existing infrastructure without requiring a replacement, and the use of services and architecture that are an industry standard for Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs). And when the awesome features of the QLogic 8000 series pile up, so do the advantages - including superior expansion capabilities, bullet-proof investment protection, and a total cost of ownership (TCO) that will take your breath away – in a good way (not in the holy-crap-did-I-just-see-a- ghost way). These QLogic adapters are not only freakin’ incredible, they’re freakin’ incredibly well-suited for data and storage networking virtualization, as well as for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) networks.
