ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- QLogic Corp.
(Nasdaq:QLGC), the leader in Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs),
stackable switches and blade server switches, today announced the
release of the HP StorageWorks IP Distance Gateway, an intelligent
storage router based on QLogic(r) SANbox(r) 6142 technology. The IP
Distance Gateway is fully qualified with HP StorageWorks Continuous
Access EVA software and HP StorageWorks Business Copy to improve data
management and replication for HP StorageWorks XP and EVA arrays. In
addition, the router offers SAN growth without limitations by utilizing
the company's established IP network to share SAN devices and data
replication services across remote SAN islands.

"With greater ease of use, an improved price-performance ratio and the
ability to work with any vendor fabric, the IP Distance Gateway
improves the total cost of ownership for HP StorageWorks customers,"
said Shishir Shah, general manager, QLogic Storage Services Group.
"Enterprises can realize additional benefits including easier data
migration for applications and greater business continuity."

"QLogic storage networking has been a valuable asset to HP StorageWorks
products and services, which help businesses keep up with their
changing data management, business continuity and disaster recovery
needs," said Kyle Fitze, director of SAN marketing, StorageWorks
Division, HP. "With QLogic SAN technology on the IP Distance Gateway
for HP StorageWorks, customers are assured a strong platform that
offers improved performance for present and future data management and
replication requirements."

QLogic Intelligent Storage Router Technology -- Making SAN-over-WAN
Connectivity Easy

The QLogic SANbox 6142 is business critical infrastructure required to
connect SANs-over-WANs for disaster recovery, replication and volume
copy services. For improved SAN scalability and lower management
overhead when connecting SANs-over-WANs, the SANbox 6142 provides SAN
fabric independence -- the ability to bridge multiple remote SANs
without the complication of having to merge SAN Fabrics. Along the way,
the SANbox 6142 sets a new price performance benchmark for SAN-over-WAN
