The introduction of the HPE 8Gb PCIe Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters brings datacenter infrastructure components to a higher level of performance and efficiency. The HPE 8Gb PCIe FC Host Bus Adapters are priced only slightly higher than equivalent 4 Gb HBAs, yet, they have the ability to deliver twice the I/O performance. In addition, an 8 Gb FC HBA purchased today will protect your investment longer than if you were to purchase an equivalent 4 Gb HBA. If you are using storage intensive applications, such as rich media, the increased performance of the 8 Gb infrastructure allows you to store and retrieve critical information faster. 

The virtualization of servers has become an important capability for most datacenters. The ability to improve overall server utilization, resulting in significant cost savings, has made server virtualization a "must-have" for most enterprises. By having an HBA that supports and maximizes your server virtualization efforts, you are protecting your significant investments in virtualization technology. Since most of today's datacenters are required to be available 24 X 7, it is critical that infrastructure components have failover capabilities. By installing redundant HBAs into your servers, you can feel confident that your servers will remain connected to missioncritical stored data.

Finally, today's enterprises are becoming more and more sensitive to the power consumption within the datacenter. The 8 Gb PCIe FC Host Bus Adapters provide a number of features that work together to reduce power consumption, thus delivering a "green" benefit within the server.

Key Features

First step into the 8 Gb future
  • Better performance at a competitive price
  • Well positioned for the future with 8 Gb technology 
  • Enhanced for storage intensive applications
Redundant HBAs for high availability
  • Failover of HBAs to prevent single point of failure
  • Two single port cards are more reliable than one dual port card
Reduced power consumption
  • Latest generation technology saves power
  • Reduced number of components on each FC HBA reduces overall power consumption
  • Lower power consumption means HBA requires lower airflow
Automatic host bus sensing and automatic speed negotiation provide investment protection
  • With automatic host bus sensing, all 8Gb HPE HBAs will operate in either PCIe Gen2 (x4 lanes) or PCIe Gen1 (x8 lanes)  speed, providing ample bandwidth to support one or two 8 Gb Fibre Channel ports per HBA.
  • Automatic Fibre Channel speed negotiation to 2, 4 or 8 Gb per second provides compatibility with and investment protection for older equipment.
Advanced embedded support for virtualized environments
  • HPE 8 Gb HBAs support leading edge HBA virtualization, Node Port Identification Virtualization (NPIV) which virtualizes the HBA ports in the SAN in support of Virtual Operating Systems. 
    • Allows unique virtual port names to be assigned on a per virtual machine basis.
    • Supports best zoning practice of a single HBA port per zone.
    • Supports Selective Storage Presentation for all virtual machines within a server.
    • Support for QoS and improved diagnostics through association of virtual port names and virtual machines.
Support for Boot-from-SAN provides high reliability
  • Multipath Boot from SAN (BFS) capability is fully supported across all platforms. Even if a path to storage fails, servers can still boot using an alternate path.
MSI-X support for increased efficiency
  • Message Signal Interrupt eXtended (MSI-X) support improves processor utilization and interrupt handling efficiency.
Data path protection 
  • Internal end-to-end data path protection using hardware parity, CRC and ECC.
MSI-X support improves processor utilization and interrupt handling efficiency.
  • Message Signal Interrupt eXtended (MSI-X) support improves processor utilization and interrupt handling efficiency.
