Operating System Compatibility

"Operating System Compatibility" refers to the compatibility of the 00Y3343 IBM 16GB Dual Ports PCIE X8 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter with different operating systems. It refers to the ability of the adapter to work properly with various operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, and others, without any issues or compatibility problems.

A product's operating system compatibility can be determined by looking at the manufacturer's specifications or by checking the operating system compatibility list provided by the manufacturer. The list will specify the operating systems that are supported by the adapter and the version numbers. If an operating system is not listed, it may not be supported or may require additional steps to get it to work with the adapter.

It is important to ensure that the operating system in use is compatible with the adapter to ensure proper functioning and avoid any compatibility issues.

Performance and Scalability

"Performance and Scalability" refer to the ability of the 00Y3343 IBM 16GB Dual Ports PCIE X8 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter to meet the changing needs of a computing environment over time and to deliver fast, reliable data transfer.

Performance refers to the adapter's ability to transfer data quickly and efficiently, and can be measured in terms of bandwidth, speed, and latency. The 00Y3343 IBM 16GB Dual Ports PCIE X8 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter supports 16GB Fiber Channel speeds, providing fast data transfer for storage and other applications.

Scalability refers to the adapter's ability to accommodate growth and change in the computing environment, allowing for the addition of more storage and other resources as needed. The dual port design of the adapter provides added scalability by allowing for the connection of multiple storage devices and the expansion of the storage network.

Together, performance and scalability are key factors to consider when selecting a Fiber Channel host bus adapter, as they can directly impact the speed and reliability of data transfer, as well as the overall performance of the storage network.

Security Features

"Security Features" refers to the measures taken to protect data and prevent unauthorized access to data stored in the storage network connected to the 00Y3343 IBM 16GB Dual Ports PCIE X8 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter.

Fiber Channel networks have the capability to use secure protocols and technologies to protect data, such as Fibre Channel Security Protocol (FC-SP), which provides end-to-end encryption of data in transit. This can prevent data breaches and unauthorized access to sensitive information stored in the network.

In addition, the 00Y3343 IBM 16GB Dual Ports PCIE X8 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter may also include other security features, such as support for secure login, role-based access control, and others. These security features can help ensure that only authorized users have access to the data stored in the network and can prevent unauthorized access.

It is important to consider the security features of a Fiber Channel host bus adapter when selecting a solution, as the security of the data stored in the storage network is of utmost importance to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive information.

Browse our collection, including Dual Controller, Raid Controller, 2 Port, 4 Port, Powervault, 8GB, 1GB, MSA1040, Host Bus Adapter, and PCI-E for all your fiber channel controller needs.

What is A Fiber Channel?

A fiber channel (FC) is a computer networking protocol used for transferring data between one or several computer systems at extremely high speeds. The successive technology generations of fiber channels run at data rates ranging from 1-128 (gigabit per second rates).

Fiber channels were initially developed for supercomputers. However, in recent times, they are commonly used in storage networking server environments, serving as a substitute to various serial storage technologies and small computer system interfaces (SCSI), aka "Scuzzy."

Fiber Channels are the integral components for data transmission among data centers, computer servers, switches, and storage at up to 128 Gbps.

History of Fiber Channel

Fiber channel began in 1988 to consolidate the advantages of multiple physical layer applications, including HIPPI, ESCON, and Scuzzy (SCSI). It is regulated in the T11 Technical Committee of the INCITS (International Committee for Information Technology Standards). The fiber channel effectively overcame the challenges of sustaining signal timing coherence across all the data-signal cables (50 for HIPPI and 8, 16, and 32 for scuzzy). Consequently, a receiver can conclude when all the electrical signal values are stable and sound for synchronous reception sampling.

The advantages of Fiber Channel

Storage Area Networks (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) have enjoyed increased popularity over the years. Fiber channel, on the other hand, has played a vital role in this development. While SAN employs fiber channel as the transmission protocol for storage provisioning, a NAS usually uses TCP/IP as the transmission protocol, NFS, or other file sharing applications for storage provisioning. Below are some of the advantages of the fiber channel.


Native fiber drives bring about high-level reliability and data integrity. They are dual-ported as a standard feature. Arguably the critical advantage that fiber channel SANs once held and still holds is the speed. It remains as one aspect that differentiates the fiber channel SANs from those of the Ethernet.


Fiber channel remains the ideal solution for IT professionals seeking high-performance, cost-effective information storage and reliability at high speeds. Given that fiber channel is a lossless protocol, it is often rated higher than the Ethernet network. Sent frames must be received in order and not dropped by the switch. This feature, however, is sometimes absent with Ethernet.

Other benefits of fiber channel FC include LUN masking, cost, and size. fiber channel controllers are from trusted brands and are available at give-away prices. Please choose from our wide range collection and enjoy a 30-day warranty and fast delivery across 48 U.S. states.
