EMC and Emulex- branded HBAs by Broadcom Accelerate Data and Improve Workloads

Faster for Flash

  • 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.
