Used IBM Emulex 8GB Fibre Channel 2-Port Host Bus Adapter HBA

Emulex and QLogic 8 Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters for IBM System x deliver robustness, ease of management, and high performance.

The Emulex and QLogic 8 Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) for IBM System x™ are part of a family of high-performance 8 Gb HBA solutions. These HBAs deliver exceptional performance, enabling small and medium businesses to experience unsurpassed robustness and reliability for a wide spectrum of servers, storage, and SANs.

These adapters are based on a design that requires minimum user effort while delivering maximum user satisfaction. The wide adoption of installation or configuration wizards eliminates the complexity and intricacies of Fibre Channel SANs. Emphasis on ease of use at every step ensures a successful, enhanced experience. Default settings and auto-detect configuration (similar to those used with Microsoft® Windows® XP) eliminate the need to know about every knob and button on the dashboard.

Both HBA solutions include easy-to-use software installation wizards that step you through the complete HBA installation for Windows with just a few mouse clicks.

In addition, each HBA includes a software utility for Windows and Linux™ SAN management for these adapters that is tailored specifically for small and medium business users. You can easily monitor and perform any necessary maintenance, including updating firmware.

These adapters broaden the IBM 8 Gb HBA portfolio for System x servers. These additions to the portfolio are offered in both single and dual-port PCI Express HBAs.

Features include:

2, 4, or 8 Gbps (auto-negotiation)
Persistent binding
LUN masking
2,048 concurrent logins
With rigorous testing by IBM through the ServerProven® program, you can maintain a high degree of confidence that your System x server storage subsystem is compatible and will function reliably using this 8 Gb HBA adapter.
