QLogic QME8242-k Converged Network Adapter

Call for Pricing

Help drive blade server virtualization with the QLogic® 8200 Series. It offers 10GbE Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) connectivity and investment protection for data centers with existing FC storage area networks (SANs).

  • High performance LAN and SAN networking with 10GbE Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) connectivity
  • Help lower TCO and data center costs through LAN and SAN convergence and preservation of familiar data and storage networking concepts
  • NPAR (NIC partitioning) divides a physical port into four logical ports with flexible allocation of 10GbE bandwidth
