Product Information

Installing the Qlogic Ethernet and 8GB Fibre Channel Expansion Card in every blade server in your chassis adds two 1 GB Ethernet ports and two 8GB Fibre Channel ports to each server. Combine with the two onboard Ethernet ports, this gives you an aggregate total of 4 Gbps of Ethernet bandwidth and 16 GBb of Fibre Channel bandwidth for every server in the chassis. When using the CFFh adapter, you can simultaneously use a CFFv or CIOv Adapter to enable additional I/O support to blade servers such as the HS22 when installed in the IBM BladeCenter H chassis. Plus,t he adapter connects to the midplane directly, without having to use cables or small form-factor pluggable modules.
