The Marvell QLogic 16Gb Fibre Channel (16GFC) QME2662 Adapter boasts industry-leading native Fibre Channel (FC) performance achieving dual-port, line-rate, 16GFC throughput—at extremely low CPU usage with full hardware offloads. This extreme performance eliminates potential I/O bottlenecks in today’s powerful multiprocessor, multicore servers.
In addition, support for powerful virtualization features makes this adapter ideal for virtualized environments that need excellent I/O performance to service growing numbers of virtual machines (VMs).Leadership, Confidence, and Trust:
Marvell is the undisputed leader in Fibre Channel Adapters, with over 20 years of experience and Fibre Channel products that have been qualified by all major server manufacturers in multiple form factors. Marvell owns the most established, proven Fibre Channel stack in the industry with more Fibre Channel ports shipped than any other vendor. Virtualization Optimized:
The QME2662 Adapter supports standards-based virtualization such as N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV). In addition, line-rate 16GFC throughput and unmatched storage performance maximize the number of VMs that each server can support. Superior Application Performance:
The Marvell QLogic QME2662 Adapter consumes fewer CPU cycles to drive storage traffic at line rate across all ports. With support for over 1.2 million I/O transactions per second, this adapter delivers superior storage application performance in virtualized and nonvirtualized environments. Power Optimized:
The QME2662 Adapter provides maximum power efficiency through dynamic power management, which ensures that the PCIe host bus link uses the minimal number of PCIe lanes, regardless of whether the server supports PCIe Gen3, to meet the required Fibre Channel bandwidth. Using fewer PCIe lanes means that this adapter uses less power, while continuing to maintain the highest level of Fibre Channel performance.Investment Protection:
The QME2662 Adapter is backward compatible with existing 8Gb Fibre Channel infrastructure.
The adapter is also compatible with the same Fibre Channel software driver stack that has been tested and validated across all major hardware platforms, all major hypervisors and OSs, and has been battle-hardened in millions of previous installations. Simplified Management:
Marvell’s unified management application, QConvergeConsole® (QCC), provides singlepane-of-glass management for the company’s broad product line of storage and networking adapters (Fibre Channel, converged networking, NIC, and iSCSI).
In addition, Marvell supports all major APIs, giving the end user the flexibility to manage their Marvell QLogic Fibre Channel adapter portfolio using third-party management tools, including a vCenter plug-in for VMware.
