LPe31004 FC Host Bus Adapter

4 Port 16GFC Short Wave Optical-LC SFF

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 and 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 with Dynamic Multi-core architecture offer higher performance, lower latency, enhanced diagnostics and manageability that benefit both 16GFC and 32GFC environments. 

The unique Emulex Dynamic Multi-core architecture delivers unparalleled performance and more efficient port utilization than other HBAs by applying all ASIC resources to any port that needs it. Compared to the previous generation, Emulex Gen 6 HBAs deliver 2x greater bandwidth - 12,800MBps (2 ports 32GFC, or 4 ports 16GFC, full duplex), less than half the latency, and support an industry-leading 1.6 million IOPS per adapter. The quad-port LPe32004 delivers up to 3.2 million IOPS per adapter.

The adapters are NVMe over Fabrics-enabled, delivering an additional 55% lower latency than SCSI, and support NVMe over Fabrics and SCSI concurrently.

Emulex LPe31000-series HBAs are available with single, dual or quad 16GFC optics that can be upgraded with 32GFC optics later to utilize the full performance of Gen 6 FC technology. A second quad-port 16GFC model is available that features a low-profile design. It provides the highest port density within a low-profile form factor (optics are not upgradeable). 

The LPe32000-series is available with single, dual or quad 32GFC optics.
