The HPE SN1600Q 32Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters allows more data to be moved per watt of power consumed vs. earlier FC generations, improving the power to performance ratio by over 30%.
Is your data center poised to take the next step in Fibre Channel connectivity?
The HPE SN1600Q 32Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters brings data center infrastructure components to a higher level of performance and efficiency with the ability to deliver twice the bandwidth of 16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs). The SN1600Q 32Gb FC HBA is backward compatible with 16 and 8Gb FC storage networks and will protect future investments. When using storage-intensive applications, such as backup/restore, database transactions, virtualization, and rich media, the increased performance of the 32Gb infrastructure enables more rapid storage and retrieval of critical information.
The HPE SN1600Q 32Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters deliver twice the bandwidth of 16 Gb FC HBAs.
More data moved per watt of power consumed when compared to the Generation 5 (16 Gb) FC adapters.
The HPE SN1600Q 32Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters supports for N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV) and industry standards-based Class-specific control (CS_CTL), provides end-to-end quality of service (QoS).
