            Ordering Information

            The QLogic 8 Gb Fibre Channel HBA for System x offers an affordable and reliable SAN to small and medium businesses. The adapter is easy to use, with proven quality and demonstrated robustness (highest mean-time between failures). This adapter is based on a design that requires minimum user effort while delivering maximum user satisfaction. The wide adoption of installation and configuration wizards eliminates the complexity and intricacies of Fibre Channel SANs. Emphasis on ease of use at every step ensures a successful, enhanced experience. Default settings and auto-detect configuration eliminate the need to know about every knob and button on the dashboard.

            The adapter includes a wizard that steps through the complete HBA installation for Windows with just a few mouse clicks. Each server can be installed with one or more adapter cards to enable redundant connections within System x servers. The adapter card offers support for 8 Gbps data rates.
