The QLogic Dual Port 10 GbE SFP+ embedded VFA is based on the QLogic second generation of converged network controllers, supporting simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (FCoE and iSCSI) traffic at line-rate, 10 Gbps Ethernet speed. This convergence of networking traffic lowers data center costs by eliminating the need for separate LAN and SAN infrastructure. Data centers now need fewer adapters, cables, and switches, which also means reduced power and cooling costs. In addition, these controllers are fully compatible with existing Fiber Channel and iSCSI storage, providing investment protection for existing infrastructure.
