Breakthrough Fibre Channel Performance and Advanced Features

Dell Image 1

Dell 32GFC, 16GFC and 8GFC adapters by Emulex are designed for the virtualization, cloud and database era, taking Fibre Channel SANs to the next level by delivering more than just incredible performance and higher throughput.

 

Faster for Flash

Dell Image
  • Up to 1.6M IOPS on a single-port via Emulex Dynamic Multi-core Architecture*- dynamically scales HBA resources to any port that needs it, essential when ports are used in active-standby mode
  • ExpressLane feature prioritizes mission-critical traffic in congested networks* ensuring maximum application performance and ROI on flash storage arrays

Better for Virtualization & Workloads

  • Maximizes VM density with more standard on-chip resources*
  • Improves VDI experience during bootstorms with low latency HBAs*
  • Accelerates database workloads- realize substantial performance improvements by deploying new servers with faster HBAs, even without investing in a new storage array

Lossless, Reliable Networking

  • Simply the best reliability -10 million hours field mean time between failure (MTBF), the highest in the industry to ensure SLAs are met
  • Supports Brocade ClearLink(D-Port) diagnostics, Link Cable Beaconing, Read Diagnostic Parameters, and Host Name Registration (on select Gen 6/Gen 5 HBAs)
  • Co-inventor of T10-PI advanced data integrity- available on 8GFC, 16GFC and 32GFC HBAs
 
* Available on Gen 5/Gen 6 (LPe32000/31000/16000) -series HBAs. See the Demartek product evaluation and Demartek feature comparison reports for more information.
 

Accelerate Applications and Improve Bandwidth for Enterprise Workloads
 
Consistent with the Dell commitment to optimize the enterprise, Emulex I/O connectivity solutions for the PowerEdge 13th generation servers are designed to accelerate applications.The result is increased data center efficiency and improved bandwidth for enterprise workloads including:  
  • Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)
  • Big data analytics 
  • Unified Communication and Collaboration (UC&C), 
  • Database management 
  • Emerging architectures, such as network functions virtualization (NFV) ,OpenStack and Open Compute-based cloud computing.

The Open Database Accelerationin-memory database solution delivers extreme performance for all database workloads, pre-built and pre-tested using best-of-breed technologies from Violin Memory, Dell, Emulex and Brocade.
 
This high performance solution features the Dell PowerEdge® tower, rack and blade servers connected by Emulex Gen 5 FC adapters, networked to Dell Compellent® storage arrays united with Brocade Gen 5 FC switches.
