Simplify system management and maximize flexibility

Optimize performance using Dell iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller and Dell OpenManage with Emulex OneConnect 10GbE Network Adapters, Converged Network Adapters and LightPulse Gen 5 FC HBAs. Emulex OneCommand Manager is also available for centralized management of Dell adapters, including OneCommand Manager for VMware, so you can enable single window pane management for VMware deployments.
Improve performance and scalability

Emulex OneConnect® Network Adapters and Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) offer performance and scalability for enterprise and private/hybrid cloud data centers. You can leverage ten generations of field-proven Fibre Channel technology to provide local area network (LAN), storage area network (SAN) and Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) on a single 10GbE adapter.
Maximize your investments


Get the most out of your existing IT investments with the Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel HBAs for PowerEdge servers. Double virtual machine (VM) density by eliminating I/O bottlenecks to enable full performance benefit of flash storage devices. And increase compute capacity for database workload environments through greater IOPS and better CPU efficiency.
