IBM Expands System x/BladeCenter Networking with QLogic Solutions

While Fibre Channel continued its reign at the top of the enterprise network food chain, Ethernet turned out to be a considerably more flexible and robust technology than many FC snobs imagined.

These are some of the benefits that IBM aims to capture with its new QLogic networking solutions, but they should also help the company respond to clients who have requested simplified, integrated networking options for their IT infrastructures. In addition, while the QLogic CNAs can help clients attend to their immediate needs, the company's Pass-thru modules offer a means for better managing complex data center virtualization and consolidation efforts. Overall, IBM and QLogic's effort shows how vendors working in partnership can leverage their mutual expertise to their customers' and the market's benefit.
