The 2600 Series Adapters are QLogic Gen 5 Fiber Channel Adapters boast Fiber Channel performance - achieving dual-port, line-rate, 16-gigabit Fiber Channel 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).

  • Virtualization optimized
  • Superior application performance
  • Power optimized
  • Investment protection
  • Simplified management
  • Virtualization optimized
    The 2600 Series adapters, powered by QLogic VMflex technology, support standards-based virtualization such as N Port ID virtualization (NPIV). In addition, line-rate 16Gb Gen 5 throughput and unmatched storage performance maximize the number of VMs that each server can support.
  • Superior application performance
    The QLogic 2600 Series of 16Gb Gen 5 Fiber Channel Adapters consume the fewest CPU cycles to drive storage traffic at line rate across all ports. With support for over 1.2 million I/O transactions per second, QLogic adapters deliver the best storage application performance in virtualized and nonvirtualized environments.
  • Power optimized
    The 2600 Series Adapters use QLogic's StarPower technology to provide maximum power efficiency. The adapters offer 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 Gen2 or Gen3, to meet the required Fiber Channel bandwidth. Using fewer PCIe lanes means that these adapters use less power, while continuing to maintain the highest level of Fiber Channel performance.
  • Investment protection
    The adapters are backward compatible with existing 8Gb Fiber Channel infrastructure. The adapters are also compatible with the same Fiber 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
    QLogic's unified management application, QConvergeConsole (QCC), provides single-pane-of-glass management for the company's broad product line of storage and networking adapters (Fiber Channel, converged networking, NIC, and iSCSI). In addition, QLogic supports all major APIs, giving the end user the flexibility to manage their QLogic Fiber Channel adapter portfolio using third-party management tools, including a vCenter plug-in for VMware.
