Is your data center poised to take the next step in Fibre Channel connectivity? The HPE StoreFabric SN1600Q 32Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters bring data center infrastructure components to a higher level of performance and efficiency with the ability to deliver twice the bandwidth of 16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs). The SN1600Q 32Gb FC HBA is backward compatible with 16 and 8 Gb FC storage networks and will protect future investments. When using storage intensive applications, such as backup/restore, database transactions, virtualization, and rich media, the increased performance of the 32 Gb infrastructure enables more rapid storage and retrieval of critical information. The HPE StoreFabric SN1600Q 32Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters provides a PCIe interface providing a number of features that work together to reduce power consumption, delivering a "green" benefit within the server.
