Hewlett-Packard Corporation (HP) has chosen the QLogic 4 Gb PCI-Express HBAs for refresh of HP's MSA1500 and MSA1000 SAN "Starter Kits." These bundles utilize the HP StorageWorks FC1142SR PCIe 4 Gb Fibre Channel HBA. QLogic claims that companies that invest in HP's new ProLiant servers with PCI-Express slots can use these kits to streamline implementation and achieve higher SAN performance and reliability.
The 4 Gb performance of QLogic's PCIe HBAs -- which the company claims generate 150K IOPs per channel -- as well as interoperability with common Windows and Linux drivers for 2 Gb and 4 Gb HBAs, were significant factors in HP's choice of QLogic as a component vendor for its customer SANs. In addition, according to QLogic, the Linux driver now embodies a superior failover feature, helping provide enhanced availability for customer SANs and consequent higher investment value.
HP's latest choice underscores its relationship with QLogic, a SAN provider and vendor of high-performance HBAs. The QLogic SANPro product family is an important part of the 4 Gb HBA category sought by the HP community of customers, resellers and sales organizations.
"We are particularly pleased to be able to offer HP SAN customers the advanced performance and interoperability features of QLogic HBAs," said Kyle Fitze, director of marketing for HP StorageWorks Division. "As more customers choose HP as a SAN provider, we are confident that QLogic HBAs will help them achieve the best technology and business solution."
