The HPE 8Gb PCIe 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 4Gb HBAs. An 8Gb FC 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.
The PCIe 8Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters deliver twice the I/O performance of 4Gb FC HBAs
Moving to 8 Gb technology provides the infrastructure required for the more powerful servers and data intensive applications of the future.
When using storage intensive applications like backup/restore, database transactions, virtualization and rich media, the improved I/O performance enables faster storage and retrieval of data.
Enables more applications and VMs to run on a single server and Fibre Channel port, resulting in reduced cabling and a higher return on IT investment
Robust interoperability testing
Provides an HPE-branded HBA solution which has undergone extensive HPE interoperability testing for connecting HPE ProLiant servers into storage and networking environments.
Optimal for connecting to HPE's 8Gb FC edge/core network switches.
Smart SAN is a protocol agnostic application embedded in SAN components that enables the 3PAR to orchestrate configuration, settings and policies in a SAN. HPE Smart SAN’s Target Driven Zoning enables you to configure zones accurately in minutes and not in hours and its automatic discovery mechanism creates a powerful platform which would enable real-time diagnostics with self-healing in the near future.
