Dell QLogic QLE2560 1-port Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter

QLE2560 Host Bus Adapter. The QLE2560 is a PCI Express, single port, Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapter (HBA). The QLE2560 is part of the QLE2500 HBA product family that offers next generation 8Gb FC technology, meeting the business requirements of the enterprise data center.

Virtualization Optimized. The QLE2560 delivers enhanced security, Quality of Service (QoS), and enables dynamic provisioning. The QLE2560 allows multiple logical (virtual) connections to share the same physical port. Each logical connection has its own resources and the ability to be managed independently.

Power Optimized. The QLE2560 takes advantage of QLogic StarPower technology, ensuring power efficiency. QLogic StarPower technology offers dynamic and adaptive power management features such as power and bandwidth optimized intelligent PCI Express link training, low-power switching power supplies, and thermally efficient layout requiring lower airflows.

RAS Optimized. The QLE2560 provides the highest data integrity by ensuring Overlapping Protection Domains (OPD) on both the control and data paths.
The QLE2560 also utilizes Enhanced Hardware Assist Firmware Tracing (EHAFT), allowing more comprehensive debugging with standard drivers.

Security Optimized. The QLE2560 enables SAN-level authentication (FC-SP), fabric-level isolation (NPIV), and is capable of end-to-end data integrity (T10).

Management Optimized. The QLE2560 is backward compatible with 4Gb and 2Gb speeds. A single common driver per operating system for three generations of FC HBAs (8Gb, 4Gb, and 2Gb) simplifies deployment. QLogic's unified driver model (firmware embedded in the driver) eliminates potential interoperability issues between firmware and driver versions. The QLE2560's API compatibility with 4Gb products accelerates deployment while ensuring application compatibility.

Investment Protection. For over 15 years, QLogic has been a technological leader with products that address the current needs of customers, yet provide strong investment protection to support emerging technologies and standards. QLogic stands alone in the industry with its product portfolio depth and experience in successfully delivering technological solutions that address the needs of today and tomorrow.
