The Emulex LPe1105-HP dual port PCI Express Fibre Channel HBA provides reliable, high-performance 4 Gb/s connectivity, enabling high-availability to scalable storage in order to meet the needs of the most demanding applications and environments. Based on the same field-proven ASIC, firmware, and driver technology as Emulex's LPe1150 HBA, the Emulex LPe1105-HP is fully driver compatible with all Emulex HBAs As a centralized management suite, HBAnyware™ incorporates agent technology that provides discovery, reporting and management of local and remote HBAs. Fibre Channel is the de-facto standard for virtual server storage connectivity and Emulex HBAs are fully qualified for virtual server environments. In addition, the Emulex HBAs feature an exclusive firmware-based architecture, which allows firmware and features to be upgraded without taking the server off-line or re-booting, and without the need to upgrade the driver. This provides investment protection of end user hardware and ensures minimum downtime.
4 Gb/s Fibre Channel link speed support, PCI-Express 1.0a, Multi-Path support for redundant HBAs and paths, Superior performance capable of sustaining up to 115,000 I/Os per second per channel, Full fabric support with automatic topology and speed adaptation, Full support for both FC service Class 2 and 3, Support FC-Tape devices.
Value: Emulex installation and management tools automate installation and provide local and remote HBA configuration and management, therefore reducing cost of HBA installations across the enterprise. Emulex HBAs feature a firmware upgradeable architecture for long-term investment protection, feature and performance upgrades and seamless backward compatibility. A common driver model amongst all Emulex HBAs enables a customer to standardize on one driver version across their entire installed base - thus reducing the cost and complexity of managing all HBAs. Superior Quality and Reliability- Emulex HBAs deliver industry-leading reliability levels which minimizes downtime and increases productivity.
Simplicity: Emulex's unique Service Level Interface (SLI) architecture allows complete independence between HBA hardware, firmware and drivers. That means no reboots during configuration changes and no need for OS specific firmware. A single driver model simplifies management and upgrades across multiple generations of HBAs. Rich suite of software - As a centralized management suite, HBAnyware™ incorporates agent technology that provides discovery, reporting and management of local and remote HBAs with both in-band Fibre Channel and out-of-band IP support, enabling sophisticated management capabilities such as remote firmware upgrades and advanced diagnostics from a single console anywhere in the SAN.
Agility: Maximum SAN Performance - The LPe1105-HP delivers maximum performance levels in real-world application environments, with superior full-duplex data throughput levels that optimize SAN performance. Emulex's exclusive Dynamic Frame Multiplexing ensures consistently superior performance in mixed load environments such as disk and tape back-up applications.
Emulex HBAs deliver industry-leading reliability levels by utilizing a field-proven, single-chip design that minimizes components. Emulex HBAs also use a combination of parity, CRC, ECC and other advanced error checking methods to verify the integrity of data blocks, which are passed from the host interface through the HBA.
Emulex HBAs deliver maximum performance levels in real-world application environments, with superior full-duplex data throughput and I/Os per second. And Emulex's exclusive Dynamic Frame Multiplexing ensures consistently superior performance in mixed load environments such as disk and tape back-up applications.
Comprehensive diagnostic functions, coupled with detailed event logging and tracing, provide for fast, efficient SAN troubleshooting.
With the largest installed base of any Fibre Channel HBA supplier, Emulex is trusted by the world's largest, mission critical enterprises. Long-standing partnerships with leading storage vendors ensure unparalleled compatibility levels.
A rich suite of software complements the LightPulse LPe11000 family of enterprise and midrange-class Fibre Channel HBAs.
