The QLE8152 boosts system performance with 10Gbps speed and full hardware offload for FCoE protocol processing. Cutting edge 10Gbps bandwidth eliminates performance bottlenecks in the I/O path with a 10x data rate improvement versus existing 1Gbps Ethernet solutions. Additionally, full hardware offload for FCoE protocol processing reduces system CPU utilization for I/O operations, which leads to faster application performance and higher levels of consolidation in virtualized systems. The QLE8152 reduces data center costs through convergence. Now, one CNA can do the work of a discrete FC Host Bus Adapter (HBA) and Ethernet NIC. This convergence also means fewer cables, fewer switches, less power consumption, reduced cooling, and easier LAN and SAN management. The QLE8152 and FCoE are designed to preserve existing investment in fiber channel storage and core Ethernet switches and routers for data networking. The QLE8152 leverages the same identical software driver stacks that have been deployed and battle-hardened in millions of previous installations, and preserves familiar FC concepts such as WWNs, FC-IDs, LUN masking, and zoning.
