The PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 LPe16004 quad-port Gen 5 Fibre Channel (16GFC) Host Bus Adapter (HBA) delivers up to 2.4 million I/O operations per second (IOPS)—twice the IOPS of other 16GFC HBAs, making it ideal for slot constrained servers and environments that need to maximize FC connectivity performance. It provides maximum IOPS for solid state disks (SSDs) and new multi-core processor servers. The LPe16004 HBA cuts response times by more than half and delivers 4x more IOPS per watt compared to 8GFC HBAs, making it the clear choice for the most demanding virtualized, cloud and mission critical deployments. Its advanced management functionality can shave days off installing and managing adapters.
The LightPulse® LPe16004 features the Emulex bullet-proof driver-stack, backward compatibility to 4GFC and 8GFC HBAs and rock-solid reliability with a heritage that spans back to the first generation of Fibre Channel to today’s Gen 5 Fibre Channel HBAs. Emulex is trusted by data centers the world-over, with more than 12 million HBA ports shipped and installed to date.
