Advice on Fiber Channel Host Bus Adapter for PowerEdge R820 backup to PowerVault TL2000

Need advice on FC FBA adapter for PowerEdge R820 backup to PowerVault TL2000

I have 3 x R820 servers which currently have Qlogic QLE2462 4Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter installed for the sole purpose of backing up to the PowerVault TL2000.

Iā€™m going to upgrade to an 8Gb FC HBA for faster backups. I would like some advice on the following Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters which are compatible with the R820.

  • QLogic QLE2562 8Gb
  • Emulex LPe12002 8Gb
  • Brocade BR825 8Gb

Are there any advantages/disadvantages of one over the other.

Thank you

Hello StlCardsFanJWR,

There is not much difference at looking at the specs for all three. I would say that it is more of a choice to you as to which one you prefer to use in your R820 servers.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thank you!

I ended up going with the Qlogic QLE2562 and they are working great!
