QLogic 10Gb Ethernet Adapters And Converged Network Adapters Certified With Alcatel-Lucent Switches

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Oct. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QLogic (Nasdaq:QLGC) today announced that its 8200 Series 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) converged network adapters (CNAs) and 3200 Series 10GbE intelligent network adapters have been tested and certified as fully interoperable with the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch product family, an integral part of the Alcatel-Lucent Application Fluent Network (AFN). The Alcatel-Lucent AFN understands the unique requirements of each application, user, device and conversational context to automatically adapt the network to ensure optimal performance.

QLogic® 8200 and 3200 Series adapters, combined with Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch products, support storage and data networking over 10Gb Ethernet. By evolving and transforming technologies deployed in the data center, QLogic and Alcatel-Lucent make it easier to build more efficient networks and deliver the cost benefits of a converged network infrastructure to administrators, including improved asset use, enhanced performance and flexibility.

QLogic 10GbE network adapters and Alcatel-Lucent switches deliver a cohesive infrastructure that is fully compatible and interoperable with a broad range of networking and storage environments. Together with QLogic next-generation server I/O virtualization technologies—including simultaneous, multiprotocol processing and QLogic's patented NIC Partitioning (NPAR) method of dividing a physical NIC into partitions or virtual ports—the combined solution makes it easier to build more efficient and flexible networks.

"Today's applications require data center solutions that deliver new levels of performance, scalability and flexibility," said Amit Vashi, vice president of marketing, Host Solutions Group, QLogic. "QLogic adapters excel in dense computing and high-performance virtualized environments and deliver advanced virtualization services that make them highly suitable for Alcatel-Lucent deployments."

With wire-speed performance, QLogic network adapters are designed to address the increasingly complex requirements of virtualized data centers, cloud service providers and the converged enterprise. All of these environments require 10GbE line-rate throughput for virtualized data traffic and low CPU utilization.
