            Ordering Information

            The QLogic Virtual Fabric Extension Module is another example of how IBM has been at the forefront of offering new technology to clients. IBM was among the first to deliver Fibre Channel over Ethernet across
            System x and BladeCenter and this new module takes this a step further by offering clients I/O convergence inside the chassis.

            Clients using the BNT Virtual Fabric 10 Gb Switch Module for their LAN traffic can now combine it with this module and a Converged Network Adapter such as the QLogic 2-port 10 Gb CNA to converge their LAN and SAN on a single network. The QLogic Virtual Fabric Extension Module offers six ports of 8 Gb Fibre Channel connectivity, without the need for separate Fibre Channel expansion cards in the BladeCenter servers
