QLogic Advances Server Connectivity Leadership By Delivering Unparalleled Performance And Flexibility

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (Storage Networking World) -- QLogic (Nasdaq:QLGC), a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, continues to deliver on its Adaptive Convergence strategy with its next-generation FlexSuite™ 2600 Series adapters, available now through authorized QLogic channel partners. QLogic® FlexSuite "dual-personality" adapters fit seamlessly into current installations as a 16Gb Fibre Channel adapter today and provide end-user field upgradeability to a 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE)-based converged network adapter (CNA) in the future.

Double the Performance and Flexibility from the Market Leader

FlexSuite adapters feature QLogic I/OFlex technology, a field-configurable upgrade available spring of next year that allows end-users to use the same hardware for 16Gb Fibre Channel or 10GbE server connectivity. Unlike rip-and-replace and pay-as-you go alternatives, QLogic I/OFlex technology provides organizations with a future-proof approach to building highly agile infrastructures, protecting existing Fibre Channel investments and delivering a simplified and cost-effective path to network convergence. Optimized for multitenant and highly virtualized environments, the FlexSuite Fibre Channel adapter personality includes support for advanced features such as virtual Fibre Channel in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V and priority N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV). The FlexSuite CNA personality provides unique 10GbE bandwidth management features such as NIC Partitioning (NPAR) combined with granular Quality of Service (QoS).

Today's enterprise applications running on Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family-based servers along with the proliferation of solid state disk (SSD) drives are generating increased I/O bandwidth demand and the FlexSuite™ 2600 Series delivers with multi-protocol hardware offload and full support for PCIe 3.0. FlexSuite provides superior raw performance exceeding 1.2 million input/output operations per second (IOPS) on Fibre Channel networks. Unlike the nearest competitor, FlexSuite's dual port architecture offers complete port-level isolation which provides enterprise-class reliability and balanced, scalable performance across both ports.

With more than eight consecutive years of Fibre Channel adapter revenue market share leadership, QLogic has shipped more than 13 million Fibre Channel and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) adapter ports. QLogic's networking stack includes pervasive support of the leading operating system (OS) platforms and hypervisors including Windows Server with Hyper-V, VMware ESX/ESXi, Red Hat and SUSE Linux (including KVM), Solaris and Citrix XenServer. This long heritage of reliability has built a foundation of trust that keeps customers loyal to the QLogic brand for their heterogeneous OS environments. Based on QLogic's fifth-generation Fibre Channel and third-generation converged networking technologies, the FlexSuite adapter leverages the same, mature QLogic Fibre Channel, iSCSI, Ethernet and FCoE networking stack currently qualified and shipping from all major server and storage OEMs.
