|The 8200 Series adapters represent QLogic’s third generation of Converged Network adapters, supporting simultaneous LaN (tCP/IP)
and SaN (Fibre Channel over ethernet (FCoe), iSCSI) traffic at line-rate, 10Gbps ethernet speed.
This convergence of networking traffic lowers data center costs by eliminating the need for separate LaN and SaN infrastructure. Data centers now need fewer adapters, cables, and switches, which also means reduced power and cooling costs. In addition, these adapters are fully compatible with existing Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage, providing investment protection for existing infrastructure
The 8200 Series of Converged Network adapters support simultaneous LaN (tCP/IP) and SaN (FCoe, iSCSI) traffic at line-rate, 10Gbps ethernet speed.
These adapters interface to the host server with a PCIe Gen2 x8 bus,
ensuring no internal performance bottlenecks.
FCoE and iSCSI Hardware Offload
The 8200 Series adapters support full hardware offload for FCoE and iSCSI protocol processing. QLogic’s FlexOffload® features free up the server CPU to perform other tasks. Consequently, server applications can run faster and virtualized servers can support more virtual machines (VMs). Very few adapters in today’s market truly support full hardware offload; most rely on the server CPU for FCoe and iSCSI protocol processing
The 8200 Series adapters reduce data center costs by converging data and storage networking.
This convergence results in buying fewer adapters, cables, and switches. In addition, convergence offers lower power consumption, reduced cooling, and easier LaN and SaN management.
With QLogic’s new NPaR technology, one Converged Network
adapter is viewed by the server OS as a flexible mix (up to four per physical port) of standalone NICs, FCoe adapters, and iSCSI adapters, with the ability to allocate guaranteed bandwidth to each virtual adapter.
This unique feature is switch agnostic—it is not necessary to pair an 8200 Series adapter with any specific 10 gigabit ethernet (Gbe) switch model to enable partitioning
The 8200 Series adapters are compatible with the same Fibre Channel and iSCSI software driver stacks that have been deployed and battle-hardened in millions of previous installations.
These drivers are common across QLogic’s lineup of Fibre Channel and iSCSI adapters, simplifying revision management in heterogenous environments
Networking, FCoe, and iSCSI management is easy with QLogic’s new, unified management application, QConvergeConsole®
(QCC). QCC provides single pane-of-glass management for QLogic’s broad product line of storage and networking adapters.
The 8200 Series also has aPI support so that it can be managed by other popular third-party management tools, including native OS management tools for networking
The 8200 Series adapters support booting the server from remote storage over both the LaN and SaN. Consequently, data centers can deploy thinner servers, centralize OS image management, increase system availability, and simplify image redeployment
Numerous additions to the ethernet standard enable it to transport lossless, converged LaN and SaN traffic.
The 8200 Series adapters support all of the new ethernet standards, including 802.1Qbb (Priority-based Flow Control)
and 802.1Qaz (enhanced transmission)
QLogic has an unparalleled advantage in delivering this new Converged Network Adapter technology. QLogic is the undisputed leader in both Fibre Channel and iSCSI adapters, with years of experience providing Fibre Channel and Ethernet-based products.
