The HPE SN1610E Host Bus Adapters (HBA) are designed for demanding mission-critical workloads and emerging applications. Applications continue to grow in size and scale. To support them, enterprises are increasingly turning to new server technologies that contain hundreds of processor cores as well as high-performance storage solutions, including low-latency Non-volatile Memory Express (NVMe) and all-flash arrays (AFAs). NVMe can significantly increase the performance of storage area networks (SANs), making the selection of high-speed networking technology the critical element for achieving maximum system-wide performance. Compared to the previous generation, the HPE SN1610E HBAs offers higher bandwidth, better latency, enhanced security, and operational efficiency for 32 Gigabit Fiber Channel (GFC). It provides seamless backward compatibility to 16 GFC and 8 GFC networks.
