QLogic Delivers Reliable, High Performance, Cloud-Enabling Solutions For Windows Server 2012

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Sept. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QLogic (Nasdaq:QLGC) today announced that its portfolio of Fibre Channel, 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) and converged network adapters provide industry-leading performance, reliability, scalability and simplified deployment for the Windows Server 2012 platform through powerful QLogic® in-box drivers, which are included standard with the new operating system (OS).

Windows Server 2012 is a cornerstone of the Cloud OS. For organizations deploying shared services via a private or public cloud, it is imperative to choose I/O technologies that provide fine-grained Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities. QLogic Fibre Channel and Network QoS technologies for Windows Server 2012 handle these increased demands for flexibility and stringent service level agreements (SLAs) and allow enterprises to enhance performance and network utilization, while simultaneously reducing complexity within Windows Server 2012-based clouds.

"QLogic has been closely involved in the execution of Microsoft's Cloud OS strategy, providing network adapters with rich features that address the demands of virtualized and cloud computing environments," said Amit Vashi, vice president, marketing, Host Solutions Group, QLogic. "Our Fibre Channel, 10GbE and converged networking adapters, with in-box drivers, are designed to maximize customers' investments in Windows Server 2012 in enterprise data centers and cloud deployments. Our battle-tested, widely adopted software stack makes it easy for customers to deploy all QLogic network adapters with complete confidence with Windows Server 2012."

"Windows Server 2012 has its roots in Microsoft's long-standing expertise with large cloud data centers," said Sandeep Singhal, general manager, Windows Networking, Microsoft. "With a large installed base of network adapter solutions that fully exploit the advantages of virtualized data centers and cloud environments, QLogic provides customers with network adapter solutions that can help them make the most of Windows Server 2012's breakthrough capabilities."

Leveraging the company's 15 years of industry-leading Fibre Channel expertise, QLogic provides highly stable, reliable and efficient Fibre Channel connectivity in Windows Server 2012 environments.
