Designed and deployed by major server and storage OEMs, the QLogic SANblade QLA2340 host bus adapter (HBA) offers the ultimate in performance: 2-Gbps Fibre Channel combined with 64-bit, 133-MHz PCI-X. Eliminating 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. These HBAs are based on unique single chip fibre channel controller architecture from QLogic. These multimode optic HBAs are specifically designed for servers in direct attach storage (DAS) as well as storage area network (SAN) environments.
