FT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization software, today announced that it has integrated the latest generation of Emulex high speed 8Gb/s Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) into its SANmelody and SANsymphony™ products. These new HBAs offer twice the performance of today's leading products, providing the I/O scalability necessary to handle growing numbers of simultaneous applications hosted on virtualized servers. Additionally, Emulex LightPulse® LPe12000 and LPe12002 8Gb/s HBAs provide the increased I/O processing speed and throughput needed by large business-critical databases and transaction processing applications. Emulex 2Gb/s and 4Gb/s HBAs have been previously qualified for use with DataCore's solutions.

“Not only do Emulex's 8Gb/s HBAs run twice as fast as the previous generation, they provide more effective CPU utilization and deliver features that streamline the deployment and simplify the management of Fibre Channel HBAs within the data center,” points out Scott McIntyre, vice president of product marketing, Emulex. Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) is a leading supplier of storage networking host bus adapters. “Moreover, by working closely with DataCore and maintaining backward compatibility with our existing 4Gb/s and 2Gb/s HBA product lines, we ensure that VARs, system integrators and OEMs will be able to seamlessly transition to next-generation 8Gb/s Fibre Channel connectivity solutions.”
