Dell DH226 / 23DKW / Qlogic QLE2462 Gigabit Dual Port Optical Fiber Channe PCI Express Host Bus Adapter - Brand New

The QLE2462 is the industry’s first, true enterprise class, 4-Gbps to PCI Express x4 HBA. The QLE2462 not only delivers unprecedented levels of performance and availability, but also intelligent networking features specific to enterprise class data centers.

Enterprise Class Features.
The QLE2462 HBA is the highest performing and most reliable HBA in the industry. It delivers unmatched performance by leveraging a single ASIC design, combining a unique hardware architecture to deliver over 300,000 IOPS, nearly 1.6 GBps throughput, and support for PCI Express x4 bus speeds. More importantly, the QLE2462 HBA provides new intelligent storage networking features that redefine the enterprise class HBA, providing increased data protection, advanced frame routing, and enterprise wide management capabilities.

Simplified Setup.
Point-and-click installation and configuration wizards simplify the HBA setup process. Storage administrators can quickly deploy HBAs across a SAN using standard HBA management tools and device utilities. The QLE2462 is fully compatible with SNIA HBA API and SMI-S, thereby allowing administrators to manage QLogic HBAs using third-party software applications.

Comprehensive Operating System (OS) Support.
QLogic offers the broadest range of support for all major operating systems to ensure OS and hardware server compatibility. Drivers are fully tested and available for all major operating systems and hardware server platforms. A single driver strategy per OS allows storage administrators to easily deploy and manage HBAs in heterogeneous SAN configurations.

Guaranteed Interoperability.
Storage partner certifications, combined with agency and regulatory testing, ensures all products meet world compliance hardware and software specifications. All HBAs are tested extensively with third-party hardware, along with multiple software applications, to ensure best-in-class SAN interoperability and compatibility. You can be confident purchasing QLogic HBAs to meet your FC storage networking needs.

Investment Protection.
For over 15 years, QLogic has been a technological leader with products that address the current needs of customers, yet provide strong investment protection to support emerging technologies and standards. QLogic stands alone in the industry with its product portfolio depth and experience in successfully delivering technological solutions that address the needs of today and tomorrow.
