QLogic Corp. 8100 Series Converged Network Adapters
The 8100 Series is also specifically designed for multi-core, multiprocessor environments because it generates less heat and consumes one-third the power of existing CNA chip sets.
Data storage managers looking ahead to FCoE integration will appreciate the 8100 Series' ability to full hardware offload for protocol processing. One judge commented that QLogic's second-generation PCIe adapter is "one of the best CNAs on the market." The same judge added that the 8100 is "easier to integrate than most because of built-in driver compatibility." And another judge on our panel called it the "standard of HBAs" and "a great idea."
