The introduction of the HPE StoreFabric PCIe 8Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters brings datacenter infrastructure components to a higher level of performance and efficiency with the ability to deliver twice the I/O performance of 4 Gb FC HBAs. An 8 Gb Fibre Channel HBA purchased today is backward compatible with 4 and 2 Gb storage networks and will protect future investments. When using storage intensive applications, such as backup/restore, database transactions, virtualization, and rich media, the increased performance of the 8 Gb infrastructure enables more rapid storage and retrieval of critical information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HP Fibre HBA Basic single port 8 Gb Fibre channel HBA for HP Proliant server.Simple plug in play works great. November 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by FC HBA - good choice when it comes to PCI cards you have to work to find a non-pnp device. So I was not worried about it working but this is my setup if it helps you gain confidence in a purchace:Server hardware-------Dell Poweredge 2950Server OS ---------------Windows 2012 Storage ServerUsed two cards (one) to connect to my SAN and the other to connect to my robotic tape library.works great - out of the boxThis HP card is just a re-branded QLogic card, and they have great drivers and tools on their site - HP's site is not that great.....and CDW of course - great sales, support, and fast delivery....
