Data centers are being pushed to their limits by a number of recent advances in infrastructure technologies. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors, aggregation of applications on virtualized servers, convergence of data and storage infrastructures, along with demanding, high-traffic applications, such as database clusters, video-on-demand, and other mission-critical, high-throughput applications, are driving the need for high-bandwidth networking infrastructures and faster server I/O solutions.
Optimizing Data Center Resources
High through-put applications are driving the need for high-bandwidth networking infrastructures
and faster server I/O solutions based upon 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE).
A Unified Data Center Fabric
Convergence of the storage and data networking infrastructure complements the benefits of server virtualization and
facilitates the evolution to a utility-based IT operation.
Increasing Resource Utilization
Virtualization increases resource utilization, lowers costs, increases flexibility, and provides the ability for IT
to respond to elastic demands for resources as IT transitions to a highly effective, service-oriented operation.
QLogic Enhances I/O in Intel Xeon E5 Processor
The new Intel® motherboards are driving expanded requirements for network I/O infrastructure. The QLogic product
portfolio complements Intel's portfolio by enabling increased compute density and improved I/O performance.
Completing the Journey
As IT organizations struggle to support ever increasing demands for performance, availability, and rapid deployment,
the requirement to do more with less remains paramount. This has led to the introduction of utility-like solutions, which extend data center capabilities by enabling on-demand, elastic access to a
shared pool of resources in the cloud.

One of the key areas for a successful server virtualization deployment is providing access to multiple network resources to meet Service Level Agreement (SLA)
requirements for individual applications.
One of the key areas for a successful server virtualization deployment is providing tunable network resources to meet Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements for individual applications.
The first of two key areas for a successful virtualization deployment is to provide faster vMotion capability of VMs between your virtualized servers. The second is to ensure
your physical servers have access to multiple tiers of storage, regardless of their protocol, for use by your VMs. These two goals can be achieved using a single QLogic®
QLE8242 Converged Network Adapter. Having this flexibility from a single adapter helps organizations achieve greater standards around Service Level Agreement (SLA)
requirements for individual applications.
A key area for a successful deployment of virtualization technology is the ability for administrators to maintain time-efficient, cost-effective network and storage
management, and visibility in the face of an increasingly complex and dynamic virtual environment.
FlexSuite Adapters feature QLogic I/OFlex technology, which is a field-configurable upgrade that allows you to use the same hardware for 16Gb Fibre Channel or 10GbE server connectivity.
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V and QLogic 8300 Series Converged Network Adapter configured with SR-IOV work together decreasing host CPU utilization, reducing system latency and increasing network I/O throughput.
