Product Overview
Main Features
  • Host bus adapter
  • PCIe 2.0 x8
  • 8Gb Fibre Channel
Server consolidation through virtualization of the enterprise data center improves server/processor utilization and lowers data center capital and operational costs. IT administrators must ensure that none of the subsystems become a bottleneck for successful deployment of a virtualized and consolidated data center. The evolution of consolidated server deployments and the move to 8 Gb Fiber Channel infrastructure requires higher scalability when connecting servers to storage. To meet the growing demands of consolidated and virtualized environments, enterprise IT administrators must deploy a scalable, high-performance adapter architecture that can address the demands placed by multiple virtual machines (VMs) or guest operating systems, as well as applications, in virtualized environments running simultaneously on a single physical server.

To help IT administrators make the best, most informed adapter choice, QLogic performed a series of head-to-head performance benchmarks showing the I/O performance and scalability advantages of the QLogic 2500 series 8 Gb Fiber Channel Adapter. QLogic compared the overall performance of these 8 Gb adapters when attached to an industry-leading, solid-state storage array to emulate real-world vSphere 4 environments.
