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.

CMMS vs EAM: What Is the Difference?

  • Source: IFS
  • Written By:
  • Published:
Every enterprise asset management (EAM) application can be used as a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), but not every CMMS can be used as, or has the broad functionality of, an EAM application. More specifically, CMMS is essentially about managing maintenance work necessary to sustain an asset, whereas EAM has more to do with managing the asset over its lifecycle to minimize cost and risk while maximizing return. This white paper explores how CMMS applications and EAM applications... Read More

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

Benefits and Methods of SAN Extension Using QLogic Switches and Routers

Realize the benefits of storage area networks (SANs) by using public or private networks. The benefits of SANs include centralized data management, back up, and restoration of data, as well as remote archiving for disaster recovery and business continuity. Host bus adapters (HBAs), switches, and multiprotocol routers are the keys to the fibre channel network—and the high-quality of select remote sites. Read More
