Overview
Bottom rule

The Emulex 16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC) host bus adapters (HBAs) for IBM® System x are part of a family of high-performance FC HBA solutions. These HBAs deliver exceptional performance, enabling small and medium businesses to experience unsurpassed robustness and reliability for a wide spectrum of servers, storage, and SANs.

These adapters are based on a design that requires minimum user effort while delivering maximum user satisfaction. The wide adoption of installation or configuration wizards eliminates the complexity and intricacies of Fibre Channel SANs. Emphasis on ease of use at every step ensures a successful, enhanced experience. Default settings and auto-detect configuration (similar to those used with Microsoft™ Windows™) provide more user guidance for dashboard functionality to get better results.

Both HBA solutions include easy-to-use software installation wizards that step you through the complete HBA installation for Windows with just a few mouse clicks.

In addition, each HBA includes a software utility for Windows and Linux™ SAN management for these adapters that is tailored specifically for small and medium business users. You can easily monitor and perform any necessary maintenance, including updating firmware.

These adapters broaden the IBM FC HBA portfolio for System x servers. These additions to the portfolio are offered in both single and dual-port PCI Express® HBAs.

Features include:

With rigorous testing by IBM through the ServerProven® program, you can maintain a high degree of confidence that your System x server storage subsystem is compatible and will function reliably using these 16 Gb HBA adapters.

Warranty: The adapters come with a one year, customer replaceable unit (CRU), limited warranty1.

Description
Bottom rule

The Emulex 16 Gb Fibre Channel HBAs for IBM System x offer an affordable and reliable SAN to small and medium businesses. The adapters are easy to use, with proven quality, and demonstrated robustness (highest mean-time between failures). These adapters are based on a design that requires minimum user effort while delivering maximum user satisfaction. The wide adoption of installation and configuration wizards eliminates the complexity and intricacies of Fibre Channel SANs. Emphasis on ease of use at every step ensures a successful, enhanced experience. Default settings and auto-detect configuration (similar to those used with Microsoft Windows) provide more user guidance for dashboard functionality to get better results.

The adapters include a wizard that steps through the complete HBA installation for Windows with just a few mouse clicks. In addition, Emulex AutoPilot Manager includes a simple Windows and Linux management tool for the adapter that is tailored specifically for small and medium business users. You can easily monitor and perform any necessary maintenance, including updating firmware.

The Emulex 16 Gb Fibre Channel HBAs are latest PCIe adapter card options for System x servers.

Each server can be installed with one or more adapter cards to enable redundant connections within System x servers. The adapter cards offer support for 16 Gbps data rates.

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.
