EMC Qualifies Emulex

DALLAS -- Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced that its LightPulse LP21000 family of Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) are qualified by EMC for use in storage area networks (SANs) using the new EMC® Connectrix® NEX-5020 - EMC's first FCoE switch - and EMC® CLARiiON®, EMC Celerra® and EMC Symmetrix® networked storage systems. With this announcement, Emulex and EMC continue their long-standing history of delivering industry-leading solutions that enable customers to seamlessly deploy next-generation data center technologies, such as FCoE, while extending their existing investments in Fibre Channel infrastructure, management, training and processes to converged networks.

"The data center is undergoing a significant transformation driven by virtualization, consolidation and PCSC (power, cooling, space and cabling) concerns. Emulex is working closely with EMC to deliver FCoE-based solutions that address the needs of enterprise data centers," said Taufik Ma, vice president of product marketing, Emulex Corporation. "Today's announcement, coupled with last week's solidification of the FCoE standard in INCITS, marks the realization of a complete production-ready FCoE enabled network convergence solution."
