The introduction of the HPE StoreFabric PCIe 8Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters brings datacenter 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.
Looking for a 2 port 10GbE mezzanine adapter card for Virtual Connect on your HPE BladeSystem? The NC532M is a multifunction 10 Gigabit Ethernet network adapter for the ProLiant c-Class BladeSystem. The adapter is a dual port 10GbE mezzanine that when paired with the new 10Gb Virtual Connect Module provides up to eight physical function NICs that can be configured to operate at any speed from 100 Mb/s to 10 Gb/s. The NC532m works as a standard dual port 10GbE NIC when connected to non-Virtual Connect devices such as the HPE 6120XG. The adapter ships with support for VLAN tagging, QoS, teaming (bonding), Receive Side Scaling (RSS), PXE. The NC532m adapter is supported in ProLiant c-class server Type I and II mezzanine slots allowing customers to provision their servers with unprecedented bandwidth never before available in a blade.
The QMH2562 is a PCI Express based 8Gb Fibre Channel mezzanine card for the HPE c-Class BladeSystem that delivers twice the data throughput as the previous generation 4Gb mezzanine card. It is optimized for virtualization, low power usage, management, security, reliability, availability and serviceability. While providing leading edge 8Gb performance, it is also backward compatible with 4Gb and 2Gb Fibre Channel speeds.
HPE StoreFabric Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) are dual port adapters that provide Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel (FC) connectivity over 10 GbE/25 GbE using both Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) standards. By consolidating Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel onto a converged adapter, HPE CNAs reduce the number of separate adapters and cables required for your data center and also reduce operational, power, and cooling costs while preserving existing Ethernet and Fibre Channel infrastructure. HPE CNAs have also been thoroughly tested with HPE ProLiant servers and HPE Top of Rack (ToR) switches to help ensure a better HPE FCoE solution for your data center.
Need a 10GbE CNA enabled Ethernet NIC for your HPE BladeSystem? The HPE NC553m 10Gb 2-port FlexFabric Adapter delivers the performance benefits and cost savings of converged network connectivity for HPE BladeSystem servers. The dual-port NC553M optimizes network and storage traffic with hardware acceleration and offloads for stateless TCP/IP, TCP Offload Engine (TOE), and Fibre Channel.
What if you could increase your HPE Synergy performance and simplify management with a relatively low-cost solution?
The HPE Synergy 2820C 10Gb Converged Network Adapter is a key element in HPE composable fabric connecting pools of compute resources to networks with reliable, high-performing converged 10 Gb Ethernet connectivity. It has storage I/O functionality along with single root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) capabilities. With Flex-10 Technology, it converges Ethernet and FCoE onto a single connection simplifying hardware and reducing costs.
Provisioning and updating Synergy 2820C are simple, reliable and fast using the HPE Synergy software-defined template-driven, frictionless operation. The HPE Synergy Composer automatically delivers proper firmware and driver coordination including staging updates for execution to avoid workload disruption.
What if you could double your bandwidth, simplify management and reduce compute I/O costs and complexity?
The HPE Synergy 3820C 10/20Gb Converged Network Adapter is a key element in HPE composable fabric connecting pools of compute resources to networks with reliable, high-performing converged 10 or 20 Gb Ethernet connectivity. With Flex-20 Technology, the Synergy 3820C converges Ethernet and FCoE onto a single connection simplifying hardware and reducing costs. Each adapter replaces a 10 Gb NIC and 8 Gb Fibre Channel HBA simplifying I/O hardware by 50% and reducing costs up to 60%. The Synergy 3820C is an ideal choice for any virtualized or converged data center.
