QLogic HBAs in Linux Kernel

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- QLogic Corp.
(Nasdaq:QLGC), a leading provider of iSCSI HBAs, today announced the
availability of the industry's first iSCSI HBA functionality to be accepted
into the "upstream" Linux kernel. Developed by the Linux community, the
upstream Linux kernel is the central core of popular Linux packages
including Debian, Red Hat, SuSE, Slackware and Yellowdog. The company's
collaboration with the Linux community and the acceptance of the QLogic
SANblade(r) 4000 Series functionality into the Linux kernel means that for
the first time Linux system administrators can easily deploy fully tested
and supported iSCSI networks -- right out of the box.

"Now that iSCSI technology has matured, and the Linux community has accepted
it into the kernel, the way is paved for accelerated deployment of the
technology," said Amit Vashi, senior director of marketing, QLogic Computer
Systems Group. "Today anyone that downloads a kernel will have immediate
access to iSCSI connectivity and upcoming distributions will have iSCSI
connectivity included on their respective CDs."
