Qlogic Adapters are Certified as DataCore Ready
By Anuradha Shukla
QLogic FlexSuite 2600 Series 16Gb Gen 5 Fibre Channel adapters and FabricCache 10000 Series server-based caching adapters have been certified as DataCore Ready.
These adapters are now completely interoperable with DataCore Software’s SANsymphony-V storage virtualization solutions that are designed to address the storage-related problems raised by server and desktop virtualization in data centers and cloud environments.
A combination of SANsymphony-V, FlexSuite Gen 5 Fibre Channel adapters and QLogic FabricCache adapters is said to maximize network infrastructure for data centers.
"QLogic channel partners and end-users can now confidently deploy award-winning QLogic adapters with SANsymphony-V to optimize network performance and make the most of their IT investments," said Joe Kimpler, director of technical alliances, QLogic Corp. (News - Alert)
Solutions that are certified through the DataCore Ready program can improve DataCore SANsymphony-V Storage Hypervisor-based infrastructures.
All solutions listed as DataCore Ready have completed additional verification testing to ensure a high level of joint solution compatibility.
QLogic Gen 5 Fibre Channel adapters are ideal for high bandwidth, I/O-intensive applications that require very reliable solutions.
Said to be the storage industry's first caching SAN adapter, FabricCache provides enterprise-ready, high-performance application acceleration for SANs.
FabricCache combines QLogic's Fibre Channel adapter with PCIe flash cache to deliver a simpler, cost-efficient and sharable cache solution.
"Customers can choose the best QLogic solution—FabricCache adapters for high-performance clustered caching or FlexSuite Gen 5 adapters for ultra-high performance—to best handle their data requirements," added Kimpler.
Qlogic was in news last month for announcing that it is now providing fiber channel and converged network connectivity for Lenovo (News - Alert) ThinkServer systems. Both companies will together address the increasing demand for high-performance storage networking solutions for enterprise data centers and government organizations in China and elsewhere.
