QLogic vs. Emulex 4Gb Fibre Channel HBA: Performance Benchmarking with Oracle Workloads

A critical element of storage area network performance is the selection and deployment of a host bus adapter (HBA) with the right architecture. But high-performance database solutions also need to be complemented by high-performance and scalable input/output connectivity. Choosing the wrong components can result in management complexity—and severely limit an organization’s overall business agility.

HBA of Choice for Solaris Environments

The Solaris operating system has become the top choice for hosting data center applications. Sun Solaris platforms consistently exceed the reliability requirements of enterprise data centers while at the same time reducing total cost of ownership (TCO). QLogic fibre channel solutions are a perfect match for Solaris environments and successfully meet the input/output requirements of enterprise applications. Read More

Impact of HBA Performance on Server Virtualization

Server consolidation is the reason enterprises deploy server virtualization technologies across their data centers, improving server and processor use. As more virtual servers are consolidated onto a single server, demand is increased on the central processing unit (CPU) and host bus interfaces. However, you can do more with less by deploying a fibre channel host bus adapter, enhancing your server consolidation levels. Read More

QLogic vs. Emulex 4Gb Fibre Channel HBA: Performance in Windows Environment

Organizations need lower ownership costs for hardware. But that’s not all. They also need a protected infrastructure investment, and applications that perform the way they need them to, when they need them. To meet these demands, enterprise storage area network (SAN) users must deploy a scalable host bus adapter architecture that addresses cost, performance, backward compatibility, and—most importantly—future scalability. Read More
