Product Description

The introduction of the HP PCIe 8Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters brings datacentre infrastructure components to a higher level of performance and efficiency with the ability to deliver twice the I/O performance of 4 Gb FC HBAs. An 8 Gb Fibre Channel HBA purchased today is backward compatible with 4 and 2 Gb storage networks and will protect future investments.  When using storage intensive applications, such as backup/restore, database transactions, virtualization, and rich media, the increased performance of the 8 Gb infrastructure enables more rapid storage and retrieval of critical information. Finally, PCIe 8Gb FC Host Bus Adapters provide a number of features that work together to reduce power consumption, thus delivering a green benefit within the server.

Main Features:

  • 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
  • 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
  • Datacentre administrators do not need to concern themselves with multiple requests from the virtualized servers potentially creating conflict
  • Improves host utilization and enhances application performance
