Next-Gen Server Attach

QLogic FlexSuite Adapters 16Gb Gen 5 Fibre Channel or 10Gb converged Ethernet

Next-Generation Server Attach Technology

FlexSuite provides enterprise data center scalability and interoperability

Application trends and shifts in technology are driving the requirements for I/O connections between the server and storage fabrics, including the need for high performance, deployment flexibility, and ease of use. Server attachment has to support heterogeneous environments, multi-protocol I/O, higher levels of virtualization, and cloud computing deployments. Converged networks and Gen 5 Fibre Channel SANs enable enterprise businesses to meet these complexities.

Using QLogic’s I/OFlex technology, a single PCIe slot in the server can be used over the lifetime of the server to support Fibre Channel SANs and converged networks. QLogic FlexSuite Adapters combine support for 16Gb Gen 5 Fibre Channel with 10Gb Ethernet on the same hardware, future-proofing investments in network gear, supporting upgrades to converged traffic, and optimizing connectivity for virtualization and cloud deployments.
