8Gb/s Fibre Channel PCI Express 2.0
Single Channel Host Bus Adapter
Unparalleled manageability, reliability, performance and ease of deployment
Streamlined installation and management, unrivaled scalability and industry-leading virtualization support make the single-channel Emulex LightPulse LPe12000 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter (HBA) an ideal solution for enterprise, mixed-operating system (OS) and virtual server environments. With powerful management capabilities and broad platform support, they deliver maximum performance in the broadest range of applications and environments.
Proven design, architecture and interface
Emulex LightPulse HBAs' highly integrated processor design minimized onboard components to improve host performance and efficiency. Advanced error-checking features ensure the integrity of block data as it traverses the Storage Area Network (SAN). Emulex's firmware-based architecture enables feature and performance upgrades without costly hardware changes. The unique Service Level Interface (SLI™) allows use of a common driver across all models of Emulex HBAs on a given OS platform. Installation and management facilities are designed to minimize server reboots and further simplify deployment.

Improves IT staff productivity through simplified deployment and management
Doubling the maximum Fibre Channel link rate from 4Gb/s to 8Gb/s and enhanced virtualization capabilities help support IT "Green" initiatives
Frame-level multiplexing and out-of-order frame reassembly increases link efficiency and maximizes HBA performance.
Data Protection Features
End-to-end data protection with hardware parity, CRC, ECC and other advanced error-checking and correcting algorithms ensure data is safe from corruption.
BlockGuard®-ready - Only Emulex HBAs provide end-to-end data integrity with support of the T10 Protection Information (T10-PI) standard to prevent silent data corruption and help ensure the integrity of user data as it is transferred from the application to the SAN.
Deployment and Management Features
Universal boot capability allows the appropriate boot environment to be automatically selected for any given hardware.
Boot-from-SAN capability reduces system management costs and increases uptime.
Detailed real-time event logging and tracing enables quick diagnosis of SAN problems.
Beaconing feature flashes the HBA LEDs, simplifying their identification within server racks.
Environmental monitoring feature helps to optimize SAN availability.
