The Brocade 8Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter for HP c-Class BladeSystem provides a new level of server connectivity through unmatched hardware capabilities and unique software features. It is designed to help organizations implement end-to-end services across next-generation data centers. Brocade FC HBAs are the only HBAs which support the Server Application Optimization (SAO) license to extend Brocade data center fabric technologies to the server infrastructure, thereby improving overall application performance and virtual machine scalability. SAO enables individual traffic flows to be specifically configured, prioritized, and optimized from end-to-end throughout the data center. SAO is enabled via software licensing on Brocade switches and directors, and is deployed along with Brocade FC HBAs to help IT organizations more easily manage true end-to-end SAN services across next-generation data centers.
