Emulex Announces Support for MSFT

LAS VEGAS -- Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced that its
LightPulse(r) family of 8Gb/s and 4Gb/s Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) support Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 and its new Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO) feature. PRO, coupled with Emulex's management pack for PRO, enables administrators to monitor and control the allocation of virtualized servers connected to a storage area network (SAN). This enables customers to dynamically manage the performance of their virtualized infrastructure. Emulex's management pack for PRO provides Virtual Machine Manager with the I/O connectivity information needed to improve the placement and migration of virtual machines based on storage requirements and available resources.

"Emulex is committed to working with Microsoft to deliver products to the market that offer cutting edge I/O connectivity tools and features for virtualized server environments," said Mike Smith, executive vice president of worldwide marketing, Emulex Corp. "As server virtualization continues to drive SAN attach rates, Emulex's Fibre Channel HBAs provide end users with a comprehensive feature set that ensures server virtualization environments are optimized for SAN connectivity."
