The QLE8362-SR-CK 8300 Series Dual Port Ethernet-to-PCIe Converged Network Adapter from QLogic supports simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI) traffic at line rate and 10Gb/s Ethernet (GbE) speeds at extremely low CPU usage with full hardware offloads. This optimal performance eliminates potential I/O bottlenecks in multiprocessor, multicore servers. It also provides powerful virtualization features for virtualized environments that need excellent I/O performance to service growing numbers of virtual machines (VMs). The ability to support multiple protocols simultaneously on the same hardware offers multi-tenancy flexibility, which is ideal for private and public cloud environments.
Optimal Ethernet, Fibre Channel, FCoE, and iSCSI Stacks
QLogic is the undisputed leader in Fibre Channel and Converged Network Adapters, with over 15 years of experience and has deployed more Fibre Channel and FCoE ports than other vendors. It has been qualified by all major server and storage OEMs to provide networking, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and FCoE connectivity from host and storage to fabric. QLogic is the only vendor with proven Ethernet, Fibre Channel, FCoE, and iSCSI stacks.
Powered by QLogic VMflex technology, it supports QLogic's switch-agnostic NIC partitioning (NPAR) technology as well as industry-standard I/O virtualization technologies. SR-IOV enhances I/O performance in virtualized environments and improves VM scalability for increasing storage and networking workloads.
Superior Application Performance
The QLogic 8300 Series of Converged Network Adapter, powered by QLogic FlexOffload technology, consumes the lowest CPU to drive FCoE and iSCSI storage traffic at line rate across all ports. With support for over 1.2 million I/O transactions per second, QLogic adapters deliver the best storage application performance in virtualized and non-virtualized environments.
Support for Multiple Protocols Simultaneously
It reduces data center costs by converging FCoE, TCP/IP, and iSCSI traffic simultaneously on the same hardware. This convergence results in buying fewer adapters, cables, and switches. In addition, convergence offers lower power consumption, reduced cooling, and easier LAN and SAN management.
The adapters is also compatible with the same 10GbE networking, 1/10 GbE iSCSI, and Fibre Channel/FCoE software driver stack. This driver stack has been tested and validated across all major hardware platforms, all major Hypervisors and OSs, and has been battle-hardened in millions of previous installations.
QLogic's new, unified management application, QConvergeConsole (QCC), provides single-pane-of-glass management for the company's broad product line of storage and networking adapters (Fibre Channel, converged networking, NIC, and iSCSI). In addition, QLogic supports all major APIs, giving the end user the flexibility to manage their QLogic Fibre Channel Adapter portfolio using third-party management tools, including a vCenter plug-in for VMware.
The adapters can convert from a 10 GbE Converged Network Adapter to a 16 Gb Fibre Channel Adapter. Based on QLogic I/OFlex technology, the adapter's flexibility simplifies and reduces cost for customers who want to deploy an Ethernet SAN today and migrate to a Fibre Channel SAN in the future.
