EMC Connectrix NEX

EMC sells the first on the market of available FCoE CNAs of the QLogic 8000-family in the future within the framework of its EMC Select program for use in fibre channel-over-Ethernet-have developed networks (FCoE) converged network adapters (CNAs) the QLogic 8000 family were now the E-Lab tested EMC “-certificate.” The seal indicates that suitable solutions for use with EMCs of first EMC FCoE switch Connectrix NEX-5020. The combination of the solutions in SAN environments enables the connection of servers with fibre-channel network storage systems EMC CLARiiON, EMC Celerra, and EMC Symmetrix. Thus customers can continue to use their existing fibre channel infrastructure, investments already made are protected. The E-Lab tested “certification the predicate of”E-Lab Tested”products that succeed in the E-Lab qualification process extensive interoperability testing under real conditions receive. This gives you the assurance that the products smoothly play together customers and easy for the purchase decision. Through the Combination of E-Lab tested-certified QLogic 8000 CNAs with EMC FCoE switch products and fibre channel based storage systems can already merge storage and data networks. QLogic 8000 FCoE adapter in the future also at EMC offer EMC offers the FCoE adapter QLogic 8000 family now in part of its EMC Select program.

This is designed to make a wide range of infrastructure products available to customers that are among the best in their respective classes. Thus a wide range of solutions provides them that complement their EMC storage solutions and serve to implement comprehensive information infrastructure. The QLogic 8000 converged network adapters (CNAs) with the converged network adapters (CNAs) the QLogic 8000 product family can be in data centers, parallel-operated networks bring together. The high-performance 10-Gigabit Ethernet solutions are optimized for use in data and storage networks of large companies, where powerful Muli processor and multi core server will find. The Integration of the QLogic creates new consolidation opportunities 8000 CNAs, because server connect with both the LAN and the FC SAN. Reduced cabling, power, and cooling requirements, as less active components must be used. This reduces the TCO (total cost of ownership or TCO short). QLogics fibre channel host bus adapters (HBAs) are the world’s most widely used cards.

The new 8000 series CNAs are based on the same driver architecture and fully exploit the benefits of proven technology. This gives customers the security, that fit the new FCoE CNAs directly in existing fibre channel storage networks and infrastructures are in protected investments. Press quotes more FCoE solutions on the market. Best evidence for this is EMCs of now available first FCoE switch, Cisco’s technology for reason is. The FCoE adapters by QLogic, the first available on the market products in this category have been extensively in use with the EMC Connectrix NEX-5020-switches, as well as the fibre channel storage systems of the manufacturer tested. The E-Lab tested-certification ensures that they meet the strict criteria and ensure their interoperability. Customers is open so that now, to consolidate their storage and data networks.” Amit Vashi, Vice President, the provision of E-Lab tested QLogic host Solutions Group-certified infrastructure solutions to building FCoE based networks, demonstrate EMC and QLogic their leading role in this area and promote the consolidation of networks in practice. The move to FCoE offers numerous advantages to companies. IT investments already made are protected, at the same time they can run based on a single, easily manageable and powerful platform their storage and data networks.” Barbara Robidoux, EMC Vice President, storage product marketing
