The PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 LPe16004 quad-port Gen 5 Fiber Channel Host Bus Adapter (HBA) delivers up to 2.4 million I/O operations per second (IOPS), making it ideal for slot constrained servers and environments that need to maximize FC connectivity performance. It provides maximum IOPS for solid state disks (SSDs) and multi-core processor servers. The LPe16004 HBA cuts response times by more than half and delivers 4x more IOPS per watt, making it the clear choice for the most demanding virtualized, cloud and mission critical deployments. Its advanced management functionality can shave days off installing and managing adapters. The LightPulse LPe16004 features the Emulex bullet-proof driver-stack and rock-solid reliability with a heritage that spans back to the first generation of Fiber Channel to today's Gen 5 Fiber Channel HBAs. Emulex is trusted by data centers the world-over, with more than 12 million HBA ports shipped and installed to date.

Proven design, architecture and interface
The Emulex LightPulse highly integrated multi-core processor design maximizes host performance and efficiency. Advanced error-checking features ensure the integrity of block data as it traverses the storage area network (SAN). Emulex's firmware-based architecture enables feature and performance upgrades without costly hardware changes.

The unique 4th Generation Service Level Interface
The unique 4th Generation Service Level Interface (SLI) allows use of a common driver across all models of Emulex HBAs on a given operating system (OS) platform. Installation and management facilities are designed to minimize server reboots and further simplify deployment.

Product Highlights
  • Maximum performance - up to 2.4 million IOPS per adapter to support larger server virtualization deployments and scalable cloud initiatives, as well as performance to match multi-core processors, SSDs and faster PCIe 3.0 server host bus architectures
  • Provides FC connectivity for slot constrained server environments
  • Delivers quad-channel connectivity for 16 GFC target applications
  • Improves IT staff productivity through simplified deployment and management
  • Reduces the number of cards, cables and PCIe slots required
  • Integrates seamlessly into existing SANs
  • Allows application of SAN best practices, tools and processes with virtual server deployments
  • Assures data availability and data integrity
  • Provides highest FC performance within the PCIe power specification
  • PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 bus increases interconnect performance bandwidth by 2x compared to PCIe 2.0, the encoding scheme reduces overhead by 20% resulting in more efficient data transfers and power efficiency
  • vScale performance and scalability - multi-core ASIC engine with eight cores supports 255 virtual functions (VFs), 1024 Message Signaled Interrupts eXtended (MSI-X) and 8192 logins/open exchanges for maximum virtual machine (VM) density - up to 4x more than other adapters
  • 2x management functionality, and takes half the time to manage with OneCommand Manager
  • GreenState power efficiency - reduces data center power consumption and associated operational expenditures (OPEX) by delivering up to 4x better IOPS performance/watt
  • BlockGuard data integrity offload - high performance T10 Protection Information (T10 PI) end-to-end data integrity protects against silent data corruption with no performance degradation
  • vEngine CPU offload - lowers CPU burden on host server, enabling support for more VMs
  • Rock-solid reliability and thermal characteristics, essential for mission-critical, cloud and virtualized applications
  • Supports for MSI-X, improves host utilization and enhances application performance
  • Supports for Gen 5 Fiber Channel
  • Comprehensive virtualization capabilities with support for N Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) and Windows virtual HBAs
  • Secure management with role-based administration integrated with Light Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Active Directory (AD) services
  • Common driver model, allows a single driver to support all Emulex HBAs on a given OS
