QLogic’s 4000 Series 1GbE iSCSI Adapters provide SAN connectivity over Ethernet and TCP/IP network infrastructures. Both the iSCSI and TCP/IP processing functions are performed on the adapters and not on the host server CPU. By offloading these functions to the QLogic 4000 Series Adapters, more host server CPU processing power is available to server applications, thus increasing the overall iSCSI SAN performance.

The newer QLE4060C adapters support Internet Protocol version 6, helping IT administrators meet a new requirement for government installaations and begin building their next-generation iSCSI SANs today.

  • Complete iSCSI and TCP/IP offload for enhanced performance
  • iSCSI digest support for increased reliability
  • VLAN and priority of service for virtualized environments
  • 100/1000 Mbps (auto-negotiation)
  • Jumbo frames, 802.3x flow control, 802.1p priority service, and 802.1Q VLAN Ethernet networking
  • Low-profile PCI form factor
  • Universal iSCSI SAN boot for true remote storage boot implementations

SANs with Ethernet and IP: iSCSI.
IT managers now have a choice when considering SAN management options. The QLE4060C and QLE4062C (collectively referred to as the QLE406xC) iSCSI adapters provide connectivity to SANs over Ethernet and TCP/IP network infrastructures for PCI Express bus-based servers. Using a widely deployed and familiar networking technology, iSCSI can lower the total cost of ownership to better manage and support storage networking.

Networking and Storage Performance.
By offloading the iSCSI and TCP/IP protocol to the adapter, the QLE406xC eliminates the processing, interrupts, and bus accesses required to support protocols in host software. The QLE406xC virtually eliminates the host CPU system processing required for iSCSI and TCP/IP, delivering the equivalent performance of direct attached storage (DAS) and Fibre Channel SANs.

IPv6 Support.
QLogic is the first to offer IPv6 support in an iSCSI TCP/IP offload engine (TOE) adapter. IPv6 is the next generation of IP addressing, which quadruples the number of network address bits from 32 bits (in IPv4) to 128 bits (in IPv6). As networks migrate to the updated IP protocol, IT managers can be assured that the QLE406xC will interoperate in emerging network environments.

Familiar Storage Functionality.
The QLE406xC utilizes the existing storage interface of the operating system. Using a familiar storage interface allows the QLE406xC to support proven logical unit number (LUN) and target-level fail-over functionality, storage SAN boot, and existing SAN management and application software.

Comprehensive Operating System (OS) Support.
QLogic offers the broadest range of support for all major operating systems to ensure OS and hardware server compatibility. Drivers are fully tested with industry-recognized certifications from all the major operating systems, including Windows, Linux®, Solaris®, Citrix®, Oracle®, and VMware®.

Guaranteed Interoperability.
Storage partner certifications, combined with agency and regulatory testing, ensure that all products meet world compliance hardware and software specifications. All adapters are tested extensively with third-party hardware and multiple software applications, to ensure best-in-class SAN interoperability and compatibility. You can be confident purchasing QLogic adapters to meet your storage networking needs.
