QLogic 16Gb Fibre Channel Adapter Named To Storage Magazine's "Products Of The Year"

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Feb. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QLogic (Nasdaq:QLGC), a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, today announced that Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com have awarded the QLogic FlexSuite 2600 Series 16Gb Fibre Channel adapter the gold cup and The 2012 Product of the Year in the Networking Equipment category. Among all products submitted for the Networking Equipment category this year, the QLogic 2600 Series was the only product presented with an award.

"As organizations upgrade their SANs to 16Gb Fibre Channel and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), networking products that are upgradeable to the newest technologies but preserve investments in existing infrastructure will be essential," remarked Storage Magazine/SearchStorage.com. "The sixth-generation QLogic 2600 Series Fibre Channel adapter supports 16Gb Fibre Channel throughput per port with full hardware offload, and is backwards-compatible to 8Gb and 4Gb networks. More impressively, QLogic's 2600 Series is transformable to a converged network adapter (CNA) to support 10GbE networks. With a single PCI Express (PCIe) slot, you can install a host bus adapter for your 8Gb or 4Gb network, and use the same PCIe 3.0 card when you upgrade to 16Gb Fibre Channel or 10GbE."

The Gold Cup is the highest award level presented by Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com. Products were judged by a panel of users, analysts, consultants, and Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com editors. Products were rated based on innovation, performance, ease of integration into environment, ease of use and manageability, functionality and value.

One judge commented, "CNA cards are approaching a strategic default, and the flexibility of this card fits an unpredictable IT future." The publication noted that a field-programmable firmware upgrade is all that's required to transform the QLogic 2600 Series Fibre Channel adapter into a QLogic 8300 Series 10GbE CNA that supports Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI traffic.
