Current fibre channel mezzanine card is suitable due to the high application performance and ultra-low power consumption for the integration in hochvirtualisierte systems Munich, 27 April 2009 QLogic delivers an 8-Gbit/s Fibre-Channel-adapter for the new HP BladeSystem matrix. With this step, the manufacturer of high-performance network infrastructure solutions underlines its leading position in the segment of mezzanine cards for blade servers, here, the company currently has a market share of over 70 percent 1. From available immediately from the OEM partners HP QLogic QMH2562 PCI-Express adapter is optimized for operation in hochvirtualisierten environments and consumes the least power compared with other 8-Gbit/s FC adapters. The QLogic QMH2562 PCI Express mezzanine card using the QLogic developed specifically for integration with HP BladeSystem c-class Blade-Server QMH2562 adapter improved the connectivity of the HP Blade Server matrix. Support the N-port ID Virtualization (NPIV) enables, that a physical Adapter port registers multiple virtual ports in the fabric.
Own resources can be any single virtual connection to, as these can be managed completely independently of each other. Ports can use better and more efficiently protect individual applications or business areas. Result is higher productivity. In terms of power consumption the QLogic QMH2562 adapter thanks to the integrated StarPower technology stand out from Mitbewerben sang messengers. The development of QLogic conceals a dynamic power management, which ensures that the host bus adapter identify the type of the used PCI-Express bus.
Depending on how many lanes to achieve the maximum performance are necessary, they provide either four or eight pairs of wires with electricity. So that you can maximize PCI Express bandwidth and compared the industry achieve the lowest power consumption. The QLogic QMH2562 has the necessary functionality to fully control access to virtualized fibre channel SAN environments. The QLogic NPIV technology allows an isolation on Fabric level and ensures the integrity of data across networks. Overlapping protection domains (OPD) also ensure that the data never are unprotected. The OPD technique developed by the company is the usually when receiving host-bus data for error checking and correction procedures also used next parity or error – checking and correcting – (ECC). The parity is usually completed with confirm the integrity of the data. Using OPD a recalculation however is already before the checksums stored in dedicated storage areas will be deleted. Detailed information to the the QLogic QMH2562 8-Gbit/s Fibre-Channel-adapter is available in the Internet at the following Web address:..FCHBA_QMH2562.aspx. Quotes by the installation of the HP BladeSystem matrix can customers who usually minimize costs and risks with the use of complex business services in conjunction. Combined services to be the QLogic adapters provide faster and faster than before. Advantage is also that the ports can be maximum capacity. Result is a rising overall productivity.” Mark Potter Senior Vice President and General Manager, insight software and blades, HP for use with hochvirtualisierten solutions such as the HP BladeSystem matrix, offer the QLogic QMH2562 adapter all functionalities required for the operation in a corporate data center in the next generation. These include among others the high fibre-channel bandwidth of 8 Gbit / s and various virtualization. With the BladeSystem matrix, HP supports its customers on the way to reduce the cost of storage, server, and network infrastructure. Existing resources appropriately and accurately can be assigned to; This guarantees their optimal usage of virtual and physical worlds across.” Roger Klein, Vice President and General Manager, host Solutions Group, QLogic 1 source: Dell’ Oro Group
