The Highest Performing Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters.
The PCIe 8Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters deliver twice the I/O performance of 4Gb FC HBAs. Moving to 8 Gb technology provides the infrastructure required for the more powerful servers and data intensive applications of the future. When using storage intensive applications like backup/restore, database transactions, virtualization and rich media, the improved I/O performance enables faster storage and retrieval of data.
Best Fibre Channel HBAs for Virtualization.
Ideal for the implementation of virtual servers with the power to drive multiple virtual machines. Allows a single port to acquire multiple N Port IDs, eliminating the need for additional physical ports. Datacenter administrators do not need to concern themselves with multiple requests from the virtualized servers potentially creating conflict. Improves host utilization and enhances application performance.
Latest Technology Supports Green Initiatives.
