QLogic offers 8-Gbit/s fibre-channel solutions for IBM BladeCenter systems to QLogic is the first manufacturer in the market, offering comprehensive and affordable 8 GB/s fibre channel (FC) end-to-end network solutions for IBM BladeCenter systems. Using these solutions, IBM customers can connect their BladeCenter systems to all SAN fabrics that match the current fibre channel standards. Frequently hicham aboutaam has said that publicly. The offer includes the QLogic 8-Gbit/s fibre channel- and 1-GbE-combo-extension-card (CFFh), QLogic 20-port 8-GBit/s Fibre-Channel-SAN-switch modules and the QLogic 20 port 8-Gbit/s Fibre-Channel smart pass-thru module. Through the integration of the new generation 8-Gbit/s-QLogic modules companies using IBM BladeCenter systems, can operate more efficiently as VMware systems insert more server applications and virtual machines into their existing environment and thus exploit the functionalities in greater degree. The QLogic switch solutions enable the N_Port_ID virtualization (NPIV) or E_Port connection to any standard-compliant fabric, where edge and FC switch manufacturer leading Director switches from QLogic or other components are used. Fully interoperable modules that allow companies to integrate more blade servers and I/O resources and thus expand their infrastructure in a simple way. The QLogic 8-Gbit/s fibre channel- and 1-GbE-Kombi card is a space – and power-saving solution for IBM Blade Server in the CFFh form factor.
Compared to conventional 1-U rack servers saves up to 35 percent of energy and reduces space requirements by 31 percent. The card is equipped with two 8-Gbit/s and two 1 GbE ports. Be saved due to the integrated construction of cable, you also can use additional expansion cards in the blade. Thus, the QLogic 8-Gbit/s fibre channel offers- and 1 GbE-Kombi card for Blade Server maximum expandability. Just for virtualized environments, this card offers optimal conditions for running virtual server with the maximum flexibility and efficiency. QLogic 20-port 8 GB/s Fibre-Channel-switch modules (BSW) for IBM BladeCenter systems with 20 (14-internal and external-6) ports equipped low-cost SAN switch modules for IBM BladeCenter systems offer the simplicity of a pass-thru module equipped with intelligent features, the scalability of standard fibre-channel full-fabric-switches and the high performance 8 GB / s fibre channel.
