Product overview of 430-4973 Dell Qme2662 16GBPS

In the world of enterprise computing, Dell is a brand that is well-known for its server hardware solutions. The company's PowerEdge line of servers is designed to provide reliable and scalable computing resources for businesses of all sizes. One important component of the PowerEdge server architecture is the blade server mezzanine card, which is used to provide additional connectivity options for the server. The Dell Qme2662 is a dual-port Fibre Channel PCI-E blade mezzanine card that is designed specifically for use with PowerEdge blade servers.

A blade server mezzanine card

A blade server mezzanine card is a type of expansion card that is used to add additional functionality to a blade server. Blade servers are designed to be highly modular, with a variety of different components that can be added or removed as needed. Mezzanine cards are used to add connectivity options, such as additional network ports or storage interfaces, to the server. They are typically installed in a slot located near the rear of the blade server chassis.

Fibre Channel

Fibre Channel is a high-speed data transfer technology that is used primarily in storage area networks (SANs). Fibre Channel uses a dedicated network fabric to transfer data between servers and storage devices. It is designed to be highly scalable and reliable, with support for multiple topologies and high-speed connections.

16Gbps Fibre Channel connectivity

The Qme2662 supports Fibre Channel connectivity at speeds of up to 16Gbps. This makes it ideal for high-performance applications that require fast data transfer rates, such as database or virtualization workloads.

Dual-port connectivity

The Qme2662 offers dual-port connectivity, which allows it to support multiple Fibre Channel connections simultaneously. This can be useful for load balancing or failover scenarios, where multiple connections are required for redundancy or performance reasons.

PCI-E interface

The Qme2662 uses a PCI-E interface to connect to the PowerEdge blade server. PCI-E is a high-speed bus that is commonly used for connecting expansion cards to servers and desktop computers.

Mezzanine form factor

The Qme2662 is designed to fit into a mezzanine slot located near the rear of the PowerEdge blade server chassis. This allows it to take advantage of the high-speed connectivity options that are available within the server architecture.

Compatibility with PowerEdge blade servers

The Qme2662 is designed specifically for use with PowerEdge blade servers. It is compatible with a range of different server models, including the M1000e, M910, and M915.

Improved performance

The Qme2662 offers 16Gbps Fibre Channel connectivity, which can provide a significant performance boost over slower connectivity options. This can be especially important for applications that require fast data transfer rates, such as virtualization or database workloads.

Increased scalability

The Qme2662 supports dual-port connectivity, which allows for increased scalability and redundancy. This can be especially important in large-scale enterprise environments, where downtime can be costly and disruptive.

Ease of installation

The Qme2662 is designed to be easy to install, with a simple mezzanine form factor that fits easily into the PowerEdge blade server chassis. This can help to reduce the amount of time and effort required to
