Product Overview of PCI-E Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter
The AJ764A HP StorageWorks 82Q 8GB Dual Port PCI-E Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter (HBA) is an essential component for storage area networks (SANs). It provides connectivity between servers and storage devices via Fibre Channel (FC) protocols. The adapter comes with both brackets, making it easy to install in different server models. In this article, we will explore the features and benefits of this HBA in detail.
Fibre Channel Technology
Fibre Channel (FC) is a high-speed, high-performance network technology used for connecting storage devices to servers in a SAN environment. It is designed to handle large amounts of data transfer between storage devices and servers with low latency and high reliability. FC uses optical fiber cables or copper wires to transmit data between devices.
HP StorageWorks 82Q HBA Features
The HP StorageWorks 82Q HBA is a dual port HBA, meaning it has two channels for connecting to storage devices. Each port supports 8GB/s data transfer rates, allowing for high-speed data transfer between the server and the storage device. The HBA supports Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocols, making it versatile for different storage environments.
The adapter has a PCI-Express (PCI-E) interface, providing fast connectivity to the server's PCI-E bus. The PCI-E interface offers low latency and high bandwidth, ensuring that the HBA does not become a bottleneck in the data transfer process.
Both Brackets Included
The AJ764A HP StorageWorks 82Q HBA comes with both brackets, making it easy to install in different server models. The brackets are interchangeable and can be switched out depending on the server's requirements. The HBA supports standard and low profile brackets, ensuring that it can fit into different server form factors.
Compatibility The HP StorageWorks 82Q HBA is compatible with a range of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and VMware. This makes it a versatile HBA that can be used in different server environments.
Management and Monitoring
The HP StorageWorks 82Q HBA comes with a suite of management and monitoring tools to simplify SAN administration. The adapter can be managed using the HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM) or the HP StorageWorks Command View for HBA software. These tools provide centralized management of multiple HBAs, allowing administrators to monitor and configure the adapters from a single console.
The HBA also supports the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), allowing administrators to monitor the adapter's performance and status remotely.
The HP StorageWorks 82Q HBA is designed to provide high reliability and availability for critical data center applications. The adapter supports multiple paths to storage devices, providing redundancy in case of a path failure. The HBA also supports N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV), which enables multiple virtual servers to share a single physical HBA. This feature provides better resource utilization and improves the overall reliability of the SAN environment.
In Summary, the AJ764A HP StorageWorks 82Q 8GB Dual Port PCI-E Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter with both brackets is an essential component for building a reliable and high-performance SAN environment. The HBA supports high-speed data transfer rates and versatile Fibre Channel protocols, making it compatible with different storage devices and servers. The HBA's management and monitoring tools simplify SAN administration, while its reliability features provide redundancy and high availability for critical applications. Overall, the HP StorageWorks 82Q HBA is an excellent choice for building a robust and reliable SAN infrastructure.
