HPE StoreFabric SN1000Q QW972A 16Gbps Dual Port PCI Express Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter with Both (Low Profile and Hith Profile) Brackets (Brand New with 3 Years Warranty)

HPE StoreFabric SN1000Q 16Gb Host Bus Adapters enable more rapid storage and retrieval of critical information when using high bandwidth cloud applications and storage intensive applications such as backup, database transactions and rich media. Designed for greater virtual machine density and bandwidth requirement environments, the SN1000Q 16Gb HBA enables more applications and virtual machines to run on a single server and port, resulting in reduced cabling and higher return on IT investment. The SN1000Q 16Gb HBA is backward compatible with 8 and 4 Gb storage networks and will protect future investments. With the ability to deliver twice the I/O performance of 8 Gb FC HBAs. The SN1000Q takes Storage Networking performance and efficiency to the next level.

The Highest Performing Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters
The HPE StoreFabric SN1000Q 16Gb Host Bus Adapters deliver twice the I/O performance of 8 Gb Fibre Channel HBAs.
Moving to 16 Gb technology provides the infrastructure required for the more powerful servers and data intensive applications of the future. When using storage intensive applications like backup/restore, database transactions, virtualization and rich media, the improved I/O performance enables faster storage and retrieval of data. Best Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters for Virtualization

Ideal for the implementation of virtual servers with the power to drive multiple virtual machines
Allows a single port to acquire multiple N Port IDs, eliminating the need for additional physical ports. Datacenter administrators do not need to concern themselves with multiple requests from the virtualized servers potentially creating conflict. Improves host utilization and enhances application performance.

Next Generation Host Bus Adapters with Improved IOPS Performance per Watt
Power savings result in lower operating expenditure.

Smart SAN Support
Smart SAN is a protocol agnostic application embedded in SAN components that enables the 3PAR to orchestrate configuration, settings and policies in a SAN. HPE Smart SAN’s Target Driven Zoning enables you to configure zones accurately in minutes and not in hours and its automatic discovery mechanism creates a powerful platform which would enable real-time diagnostics with self-healing in the near future.

NVMe over Fibre ChannelReady
The SN1200E & SN1100Q 16Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters are NVMe-enabled to support emerging NVM Express (NVMe) over Fibre Channel storage networks.

Active Health System
All HPE 16Gb Fibre Channel adapters support HPE ProLiant Active Health System integration. This helps administrators accurately troubleshoot and resolves problem within the server faster.

Secure Firmware download
The SN1200E delivers enhanced security via the new secure firmware update feature which protects and ensures the authenticity of device firmware.

Forward error correction (FEC)
FEC is enabled and improved at 16Gb as required by the FC Specification, automatically correcting transmission errors and improving network performance and resiliency.

Class-specific Control (CS_CTL)
QoS capability that enables administrators to prioritize storage traffic to meet the needs of critical VM workloads

Link cable beaconing (LCB)
LED beaconing for ports on both ends of a physical link simplifies cable identification and management.

D-Port Diagnostics
Quickly run automated diagnostic tests in a single step, across multiple adapters, servers, and fabric components to assess connectivity. Optics and cable problems are identified and resolved.

FDMI,FC Ping, FC Trace
Route Quickly check connectivity to SAN devices and query the switch management server for in-depth details on connected devices. Trace Route capability supported on SN1100Q.

Read Diagnostic Parameters (RDP)
Identify the source of network and media errors like cyclic redundancy check (CRC) and loss of sync (LOS) by remotely accessing diagnostic information from anywhere in the fabric.

Fabric-assigned Port Worldwide Name (FA_WWN)
Using SN1100Q &SN1000Q administrators can preconfigure WWN settings at the switch port allowing Fibre Channel adapter to acquire port WWN address from the Gen 5 16Gb or Gen 6 32GFCfabric. This allows SAN administrator to configure SAN zoning without need for servers to be present.

Fabric-based Boot LUN (F_BLD)
Allows SN1100Q & SN1000Q to acquire Boot-LUN information directly from Gen 5 16Gb switch, speeding up deployment of new servers in a SAN environment.

Buffer-to-Buffer Credit Recovery (BB_CR)
The SN1100Q enhances performance and resiliency by automatically recovering buffer credits, which can be lost on long distance and lossy connections with the potential to stall I/O or degrade performance.

Virtual Machine ID (VMID)
The SN1100Q enables System/SAN administrator to monitor FC traffic from VM to LUN.
