Emulex HBAs Hit Benchmark

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced that its LightPulse(r) 8Gb/s Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) enabled a new record-level Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) benchmark. The Emulex LPe12000 8Gb/s HBAs, coupled with the IBM System x 3850 M2 server, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008, provides the industry-leading system configuration that produced a 14 percent increase in the total number of transactions performed per second over a similar test conducted in 2007.

"This ground-breaking performance is a result of our ongoing collaboration with IBM and Microsoft to deliver the highest performance solutions that today's enterprise-class data centers demand," said Mike Smith, executive vice president of worldwide marketing, Emulex Corp.
"Emulex's new LPe12000 8Gb/s HBAs provide the critical I/O performance and features, such as MSI-X support, that meet the increasing requirements of large transactional databases."
