QLogic FlexSuite 2600 Series FC Adapters

Gold winner Storage 2012 Products of the Year FlexSuite 2600 operates as a 16 Gb Fibre Channel (FC), 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) or Fibre Channel over Ethernet adapter. It features QLogic I/OFlex technology, a firmware upgrade that enables end users to define use as a SAN or CNA in the field without replacing the adapter. Management through common plug-ins for VMware vCenter Server and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager also ease management by allowing storage administrators to centrally monitor, manage, update and run diagnostics directly from the virtual machine server.
