QLogic Certifies Gear

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- QLogic Corp.
(Nasdaq:QLGC), the leader in Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs),
iSCSI HBAs, stackable switches and blade server switches today
announced certification on the newly announced Red Hat Enterprise Linux
5, which offers Global 2000 corporations several new features including
enhanced virtualization technologies. All QLogic(r) SANblade(r) Fibre
Channel and iSCSI HBAs will be fully compatible with the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 OS and Xen Hypervisor 3.0, an open source
virtualization software solution that is offered with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

QLogic virtualization qualification support provides Red Hat customers
with a means of deploying and managing reliable storage area networks
(SANs) in virtual server environments. Integrated virtualization
environments enable users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 to dramatically
increase server utilization, improve productivity and scalability, and
reduce operating costs by consolidating their workloads onto fewer
servers.

"Through our continued collaboration with Red Hat, QLogic delivers
storage networking solutions that enable mission-critical applications
in enterprise data centers to transition to virtualized environments,"
said Amit Vashi, senior director of marketing, QLogic Computer Systems
Group. "The ability of our SANblade HBAs to scale across a larger
number of virtual machines empowers IT managers in Global 2000
corporations to realize lower data center costs through server
consolidation."
