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.
The HPE QMH2672 16Gb Mezzanine Fibre Channel Host Bust Adapters provide a step into the 16Gb/s future with greater performance and advanced, embedded support for virtualized environments. Their introduction brings SAN infrastructure components to a higher level of performance and efficiency with the ability to deliver twice the I/O performance of 8Gb FC HBAs.
The HPE QMH2672 purchased today is backward compatible with 8Gb storage networks and will protect future investments and provide full port isolation design. When using storage intensive applications , such as backup, database transactions , and virtualization, the increased performance of the HPE QMH2672 enables more rapid storage and retrieval of critical information.
Designed for environments with greater virtual machine density and bandwidth requirements , the HPE QMH2672 enable more applications and virtual machines to run on a single server and port , resulting in reduced cabling and higher return on IT investment.
The HPE LPe1605 16Gb mezzanine Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter provides superior reliability, exceptional performance, enhanced security, server side NPIV, and scalable management for virtual server and enterprise-class applications. This latest FC HBA delivers twice the I/O performance of 8Gb FC HBAs which is critical for mission critical applications that rely on highly available connectivity.
Emulex's firmware architecture allows firmware to be upgraded without taking the server off-line or re-booting, and without the need to upgrade the driver. As with all Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel HBAs, the HPE LPe1605 is managed with Emulex OneCommand™ Manager (OCM). This provides a secure, centralized administration console to discover and manage Emulex Fibre Channel HBAs on local and remote hosts.
