Description: Qlogic QLE2670 - Host bus adapter - PCIe 2.0 x8 low profile - 16Gb Fibre Channel
Mfr Part #: S26361-F5313-E1
The 2600 Series 16 Gb Gen 5 Fiber Channel Adapters boast perfect native Fiber Channel performance - achieving dual-port 16 Gb Fiber Channel throughput - at extremely low CPU usage with full hardware offloads. Gen 5 Fiber Channel resolves data center complexities by enabling a storage network infrastructure that supports powerful virtualization features, application-aware services, and simplified management. This achievement provides the optimal storage networking infrastructure capable of supporting demanding virtualized and cloud-enabled environments while fully leveraging the capabilities of high-performance 16 Gb Fiber Channel and solid-state disk storage. These features help reduce cost and complexity while the unmatched 16 Gbps performance eliminates potential I/O bottlenecks in today's powerful multiprocessor servers.
- 16 Gbps per port maximum throughput for high bandwidth storage (SAN) traffic
- Up to 1.2 million IOPS reduce latency in high transaction intensive applications and virtualized environments
- Improved reliability and diagnostics
- Enhanced QoS prioritizes SAN traffic for high performance
- Simplified deployment with fabric pre-provisioning
- Future-proof design enables conversion to a 10 Gb Ethernet (GbE) converged network adapter
- Simplified management
QLogic's unified management application, QconvergeConsole (QCC), provides single-pane-of-glass management for QLogic storage and networking adapters (Fiber Channel, converged networking, NIC, and iSCSI). In addition, QLogic supports all major APIs for deployment flexibility and integration with third-party management tools.
- Qlogic's high availability architecture
QLogic 2600 Series 16 Gb Gen 5 Fiber Channel architecture continues to provide complete port-level isolation across its dual-port ASIC. This architecture, unlike other vendor solutions, provides independent function, transmit/receive buffers, an on-chip CPU, DMA channels, and a firmware image for each port. These features enable complete port-level isolation, prevent errors and firmware crashes from propagating across both ports, and provide predictable and scalable performance across both ports.
- Virtualization optimized
The 2600 Series, powered by QLogic Vmflex technology, supports standards-based virtualization features. Support for N Port ID virtualization (NPIV) enables a single Fiber Channel adapter port to provide multiple virtual ports, increasing network scalability. Virtual fabric technology allows a single Fiber Channel adapter port to participate in multiple virtual fabric domains for improved availability. In addition, line rate 16Gb throughput per physical port delivers unmatched storage performance to maximize the number of virtual machines per physical server.
- Superior performance
Up to 1.2 million I/O transactions per second provides perfect application throughput for physical, virtual and cloud environments. Integrated QLogic StarPower technology delivers dynamic power management, which ensures that the PCIe host bus link uses the minimum number of PCIe lanes to meet the required bandwidth. Overlapping protection domains (OPDs) ensure the highest level of reliability as data moves to and from the PCI bus and Fiber Channel network. As a result, 2600 Series Adapters consume less power and fewer CPU cycles while maintaining peak performance.
