The QLE2562 provides the highest data integrity by ensuring Overlapping Protection Domains (OPD) on both the control and data paths. The QLE2562 also utilizes Enhanced Hardware Assist Firmware Tracing (EHAFT), allowing more comprehensive debugging with standard drivers. The QLE2562 enables SAN-level authentication (FC-SP), fabric-level isolation (NPIV), and is capable of end-to-end data integrity (T10). The QLE2562 is backward compatible with 4Gb and 2Gb speeds. A single common driver per operating system for three generations of FC HBAs (8Gb, 4Gb, and 2Gb) simplifies deployment. QLogic’s unified driver model (firmware embedded in the driver) eliminates potential interoperability issues between firmware and driver versions. The QLE2562’s API compatibility with 4Gb products accelerates deployment while ensuring application compatibility. For over 15 years, QLogic has been a technological leader with products that address the current needs of customers, yet provide strong investment protection to support emerging technologies and standards. QLogic stands alone in the industry with its product portfolio depth and experience in successfully delivering technological solutions that address the needs of today and tomorrow.
