The QLogic Dual Port 10 GbE SFP+ VFA Adapter for IBM® System x® is based on the 8200 Series adapters and represents the third generation of QLogic Converged Network Adapters, supporting simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI) traffic at line-rate, 10 Gbps Ethernet speed.

Dual-port, line-rate 10 Gbps throughput for moving large amounts of data and eliminating server I/O bottlenecks.

The 8200 Series adapters improve on previous generation products with the following features:

The adapter ships with the Ethernet features. FCoE and iSCSI are enabled when a client purchases the optional software license key, Qlogic FCoE/iSCSI License for IBM System x (FoD) (00Y5624)

Overview
Bottom rule

The QLogic Dual Port 10 GbE SFP+ VFA Adapter for IBM System x is based on the 8200 Series adapters and represents the third generation of QLogic Converged Network Adapters, supporting simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI) traffic at line-rate, 10 Gbps Ethernet speed. This convergence of networking traffic lowers data center costs by eliminating the need for separate LAN and SAN infrastructure. Data centers now need fewer adapters, cables, and switches, which also means reduced power and cooling costs. In addition, these adapters are fully compatible with existing Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage, providing investment protection for existing infrastructure.

The 8200 Series adapters improve on previous generation products with the following features:

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM . Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
