Looking for a high bandwidth solution to meet the requirements of increasing server virtualization and consolidation? Finding it difficult to realize the full bandwidth potential of your server running I/O intensive applications? HP StoreFabric SN1000 16Gb Host Bus Adapters enable more rapid storage and retrieval of critical information when using high bandwidth cloud applications and storage intensive applications such as backup, database transactions and rich media. Designed for environments with greater virtual machine density and bandwidth requirements, the SN1000 16Gb HBAs enable more applications and virtual machines to run on a single server and port, resulting in reduced cabling and higher return on IT investment. A 16Gb FC HBA is backward compatible with 8 and 4Gb storage networks and will protect future investments. With the ability to deliver twice the I/O performance of 8Gb FC HBAs, the SN1000 16Gb HBAs take Storage Networking performance and efficiency to the next level. 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. The HP StoreFabric SN1000 16Gb Host Bus Adapters deliver twice the I/O performance of 8Gb Fibre Channel HBAs. Moving to 16Gb 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
