The QLA2460 4Gb Adapters deliver unprecedented levels of performance, scalability, and reliability. The adapters offer unique networking functionality, including Intelligent Interleaved DMA (iiDMA), Dual Read DMA (DRDMA), and Overlapping Protection Domains (OPD). For virtualization at the Fibre Channel port level, QLogic 4Gb adapters support N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) by allowing multiple N_Port IDs to share the same physical Fibre Channel port.
QLA2460 Host Bus Adapter.
The QLA2460 is the industry's first, true enterprise class, 4Gbps-to-PCI-X® 2.0 adapter. The QLA2460 delivers unprecedented levels of performance and availability, as well as intelligent networking features specific to enterprise class data centers.
Enterprise Class Features.
The QLA2460 is the highest performing and most reliable adapter in the industry. It delivers unmatched performance by leveraging a single ASIC design, combining a unique hardware architecture to deliver over 150,000 IOPS, nearly 800MBps throughput, and support for the PCI-X 2.0 266-MHz double data rate (DDR) bus speed. More importantly, the QLA2460 provides new intelligent storage networking features that redefine the enterprise class adapter, including increased data protection, advanced frame routing, and enhanced enterprise-wide management capabilities.
Point-and-click installation and configuration wizards simplify the adapter setup process. Storage administrators can quickly deploy adapters across a SAN using standard adapter management tools and device utilities. The QLA2460 is fully compatible with SNIA API and SMI-S, thereby allowing administrators to manage QLogic adapters using third-party software applications.
