Designed and deployed by major server and storage OEMs, the QLogic SANblade QLA2342 and QLA2342L host bus adapters (HBAs) offer two independent channels of 2-Gbps Fibre Channel combined with 64-bit, 133-MHz PCI-X. Enabling double IOps with only one PCI/PCI-X slot, the QLA2342 and QLA2342L eliminate traditional host bottlenecks that impede the high performance of 2-Gbps Fibre Channel. This union of the fastest I/O and host technologies creates the perfect balanced solution.

Cost Effective

These HBAs are based on unique, single-chip fibre channel controller architecture from QLogic. For a powerful, scalable solution that maximizes bandwidth and PCI/PCI-X slot usage while maintaining a cost-effective price per port, the QLA2342 is the ultimate choice.If you are looking for low-profile boards for 1U and 2U servers, the QLA2342L, a low-profile version of the QLA2342, is the perfect fit.

Leading Single Chip Integration

The QLA2342/2342L uniquely integrates a RISC processor, a Fibre protocol engine, and transceivers into a single, efficient FC controller chip that increases reliability and performance by lowering CPU utilization.

Broad OEM Acceptance

The QLA2342/2342L HBA is validated by every major OEM including Dell, EMC, HDS, HP, IBM, and Sun. The QLA2342/2342L extensive certification from major server and storage manufacturers makes it the perfect choice for multiplatform requirements.

Simplified Setup

Point-and-click installation and configuration wizards simply the HBA setup process. Storage administrators can quickly deploy HBAs across a SAN using standard HBA management tools and device utilities. The QLA2342/42L is also fully compatible with industry standard application programming interfaces (APIs), including SNIA HBA API and SMI-S, thereby allowing administrators to manage QLogic HBAs using third-party software applications.

Proven Architecture

The QLA2342/2342L architecture is the result of more than 15 years of progressive development and testing. Proven architecture from QLogic delivers higher overall reliability and enables advanced functionality with its single-chip integration, placing QLogic years ahead of its competitors. The QLA2342/2342L also has proven interoperability with all major software applications, hardware platforms, and operating systems.

The Bottom Line

Driving the standard for interoperability with extensive FC testing in SAN environments, you can feel confident in choosing the QLogic solution.
