Detail Information of Dual Port PCI-E FC HBA

The QLE2672-CK is a host bus adapter (HBA) manufactured by QLogic. It is a Fibre Channel (FC) adapter, which means it is designed to connect a host computer to a Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN).

The QLE2672-CK is a dual-port HBA, which means it has two FC ports, allowing for redundancy and increased throughput. It is capable of supporting data transfer rates of up to 16 Gb/s per port, which is the current standard for FC.

It uses a PCI Express (PCIe) interface, which is a high-speed interconnect designed to connect peripheral devices to a computer's motherboard. The QLE2672-CK is compliant with the PCIe 3.0 specification, which supports data transfer rates of up to 8 GT/s (Giga transfers per second). This allows the HBA to fully utilize the high-speed data transfer capabilities of the FC standard.

It's also mentioned as Qlogic Sanblade, which is SANblade series of HBAs designed by Qlogic with Enterprise-class features like FC-Tape support, Advanced diagnostics, and Enhanced security

It may be used in a wide range of enterprise and data center applications that require high-speed data transfer and high availability, such as storage area network (SAN) environments and cluster computing environments.

Performance of QLogic HBA

The QLE2672-CK Qlogic Sanblade 16GB PCI-E Fibre Channel HBA is designed to provide high-performance data transfer between a host computer and a Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN). Some of its key performance features include:

High Data Transfer Rates: The QLE2672-CK supports data transfer rates of up to 16 Gb/s per port, which is the current standard for Fibre channels. This allows for high-speed data transfer, even with large amounts of data, making it suitable for applications that require high throughput, such as data centers and enterprise storage environments.

Dual-Port: As a dual-port host bus adapter, the QLE2672-CK has two Fibre Channel ports, which can be configured for either redundancy or increased throughput. This feature provides increased availability and reliability in case of a single port failure.

PCI Express Interface: The QLE2672-CK uses a PCI Express (PCIe) interface, which supports data transfer rates of up to 8 GT/s (Giga transfers per second). This allows the HBA to fully utilize the high-speed data transfer capabilities of the Fibre Channel standard.

Advanced Feature: Qlogic SANblade series of HBAs designed with enterprise-class features such as FC-Tape support, Advanced diagnostics, and Enhanced security to meet the needs of demanding enterprise environments.

Compatibility: The QLE2672-CK is compatible with a wide range of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, VMware, and more. And it is also compliant with various industry standards, including Fibre Channel, PCI Express, and SCSI-3.

Overall, the QLE2672-CK Qlogic Sanblade 16GB PCI-E Fibre Channel HBA is designed to provide high-performance, high-availability data transfer in enterprise and data center environments.

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. Allhdd.com 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.
