LPe31002 FC Host Bus Adapter

2 Ports 16GFC Short Wave Optical – LC SFP+

Currently Viewing:

The Emulex Gen 6 (16/32Gb) Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) by Broadcom are designed to address the demanding performance, reliability and management requirements of modern networked storage systems that utilize high performance and low latency solid state storage drives for caching and persistent storage as well as hard disk drive arrays.

Fibre Channel is known as the gold standard for network storage connectivity in enterprise and cloud deployments. The latest Emulex Gen 6 FC HBAs offer higher performance, lower latency, enhanced diagnostics and manageability that benefit both 16GFC and 32GFC environments. Emulex LPe31000-series HBAs single or dual 16GFC optics and can be upgraded with 32GFC optics later to utilize the full performance of Gen 6 FC technology. The LPe32000-series is available with single or dual 32GFC optics.
