Dell QLogic 16G Fibre Channel Adapters

Get the most out of your network
Streamline your I/O through network convergence

Consolidate your data and storage traffic with QLogic converged network adapters (CNAs) for Dell PowerEdge servers. They offer a cost-effective way to bring 10GbE Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) to your PowerEdge data center. In addition, help ensure high performance for your applications with the ability to off-load FCoE and Internet SCSI (iSCSI) protocol processing to the adapter.   QLogic

 Help lower your total cost of ownership (TCO) Avoid vendor lock-in with switch flexibility Maximize the value of your IT investments

Help lower your total cost of ownership (TCO)

Consolidate your data and storage traffic and potentially reduce your hardware, cabling, cooling, power and management costs. By running LAN and storage area network (SAN) traffic on a single adapter, you can greatly simplify administration — there is less to manage. 
 Avoid vendor lock-in with switch flexibility

Partition your network adapter with switch-independent partitioning and pair it with virtually any 10GbE switch. QLogic CNAs enable you to allocate your 10GbE bandwidth and divide each physical port into four logical ports.

Maximize the value of your IT investments

Connect to your existing fibre channel storage network by combining a QLogic CNA with an FCoE switch. Get the most out of your infrastructure without having to rip and replace your current hardware.
