Emulex 16GFC HBAs deliver up to 10 times better reliability to keep systems up and running

Posted May 1st, 2013 by Barbara Porter

A detailed reliability study by Emulex Labs shows that based on component selection, the Emulex 16Gb Fibre Channel (16GFC) Host Bus Adapter (HBA) can deliver up to 10x better reliability than QLogic’s newly released QLE2600 series. The LPe16000B was designed with reliability in mind, with a cool running ASIC and fail-proof passive heat sink for heat management within the server.

Emulex leads in reliability with the highest published mean time between failure (MTBF) in the HBA industry—10 million hours MTBF on the LightPulse family of 2G, 4G, 8G and 16GFC HBAs.
