Exceptional price/performance, advanced management functionality that cashave days off installing and managing adapters, coupled with up to 3x better IOPS performance per watt, make Emulex LightPulse 16G Fibre Channel (16GFC) host bus adapters (HBAs) the clear choice for the toughest virtualized, cloud and missiocritical deployments. The LightPulse single-channel LPe16000 (HP QR558A) and dual-channel LPe16002 (HP QR559A) feature the Emulex bullet-proof driver-stack, backward compatibility to 4 and 8G Fibre Channel HBAs and rock-solid reliability with a heritage that spans back to the first generatioof Fibre Channel adapters to today’s 16GFC adapters. Emulex is trusted by data centers the world-over, with more tha11 millioHBA ports shipped and installed to date. 

Proven Design, Architecture and Interface

The Emulex LightPulse highly integrated multiprocessor desigminimizes onboard components to improve host performance and efficiency. Advanced error-checking features ensure the integrity of block data as it traverses the storage area network (SAN). Emulex’s firmware-based architecture enables feature and performance upgrades without costly hardware changes.

The unique 4th GeneratioService Level Interface (SLI™) allows use of a commodriver across all models of Emulex HBAs oa giveoperating system (OS) platform. Installatioand management facilities are designed to minimize server reboots and further simplify deployment.

Powerful Management Software for Maximum Data Center Efficiency

The Emulex OneCommand™ Manager enterpriseclass management applicatiofeatures a multiprotocol, cross-platform architecture, that provides centralized management of all Emulex HBAs and Universal Converged Network Adapters (UCNAs). This enables IT administrators to manage Fibre Channel (FC), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) and Network Interface Card (NIC) adapters with one tool for maximum efficiency. The unique OneCommand Manager plug-ifor VMware vCenter™ enables adapters to be managed directly withithe VMware environment, further simplifying the management process.

Key Benefits
