The QLogic Dual Port 10 GbE SFP+ VFA Adapter is based on the 8200 Series adapters and supports simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI) traffic at line-rate, 10 Gbps Ethernet speed. This convergence of networking traffic lowers data center costs by eliminating the need for separate LAN and SAN infrastructure. Data centers now need fewer adapters, cables, and switches, which also means reduced power and cooling costs. In addition, these adapters are fully compatible with existing Fiber Channel and iSCSI storage, providing investment protection for existing infrastructure.
