The QLogic 2690 series of Enhanced Gen 5 (16Gb) Quad-port Fiber Channel Adapters are designed for enterprise data centers that require the ultimate in Fiber Channel performance, power efficiency, reliability, and investment protection for demanding virtualized and private cloud environments. These Enhanced Gen 5 Fiber Channel adapters deliver the industry's top Fiber Channel performance with more than 2.6 million I/O operations per second (IOPS) - almost two times the IOPS of previous Gen 5 Fiber Channel HBAs - with optimal load balancing and linear performance scalability per port. QLogic's port-isolation design provides independent data paths for each port, running full line rate with more than 12,000 MB per second of full duplex bandwidth across 16 PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 lanes. The QLE2690 family of adapters support StorFusion technology offering comprehensive port diagnostics, rapid provisioning, and guaranteed performance service level agreements (SLAs) when used in conjunction with Brocade's Gen 5 Fiber Channel Fabric. The QLogic QLE2690 Adapters provide unmatched operational efficiency with up to 75 percent lower power per port compared to competition for reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) and leverage StarPower technology with dynamic and adaptive power management features to optimize power and thermal footprints in the data center.
