QLogic 2700 Series

The 2700 Series Controllers are QLogic’s Gen 6 (32Gb) Dual-Port and Quad-Port Fibre Channel controllers. Used for initiator or target-mode implementations, this controller delivers the ultimate in Fibre Channel performance, power efficiency, reliability, and investment protection. With up to 256 Gbps of bidirectional throughput, the QLogic 2700 Series is the ideal choice for the most demanding of flash-based storage solutions. The 2700 Series provides the industry’s top Fibre Channel performance with support for up to 650K I/O operations per second (IOPS) per port optimizing storage access for hyper-scale virtualization, solid-state storage technologies, and new data center architecture. QLogic’s port-isolation design provides independent data paths for each port to deliver consistent and predictable performance across each port. The 2700 Series Controllers provide unmatched operational efficiency and leverage QLogic StarPower™ technology with dynamic and adaptive power management features to optimize power and thermal footprints in the data center.

 QLogic 8300 series Converged Network Contollers

QLogic 8300 Series

The 8300 Series Controllers are QLogic’s fourth generation of Converged Network Controllers. They boast industry-leading native Fibre Channel performance—achieving dual-port, line-rate, 16-gigabit Fibre Channel throughput—at extremely low CPU utilization with full hardware offloads. In addition, the controllers support simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI) traffic at line rate, 10Gbps Ethernet (GbE) speeds. This extreme performance eliminates potential I/O bottlenecks in today’s powerful multiprocessor, multicore servers.
