The introduction of the HP StorageWorks 82Q Dual Port PCIe Fiber Channel Host Bus Adapters brings datacenter infrastructure components to a higher level of performance and efficiency. If you are using storage intensive applications, such as backup / restore, database transactions, and rich media, the increased performance of the infrastructure allows you to store and retrieve critical information faster.¤¤The virtualization of servers has become an important capability for most datacenters. The ability to improve overall server utilization, resulting in significant cost savings, has made server virtualization a "must-have" for most enterprises. By having an HBA that supports and maximizes your server virtualization efforts, you are protecting your significant investments in virtualization technology.¤¤Since most of today's datacenters are required to be available 24 x 7, it is critical that infrastructure components have failover capabilities. By installing redundant HBAs into your servers, you can feel confident that your servers will remain connected to mission-critical stored data.¤¤Finally, today's enterprises are becoming more and more sensitive to the power consumption within the datacenter. The 82Q Dual Port PCIe FC Host Bus Adapters provide a number of features that work together to reduce power consumption, thus delivering a "green" benefit within the server.
