Emulex 2Gb HBA Qualified By EMC

EMC Corp. has qualified the Emulex LightPulse 2Gb/s LP9002DC dual channel HBA as E-Lab Tested for use with its Symmetrix Enterprise Storage systems and Connectrix family of Fibre Channel products in Windows 2000 environments.

EMC said its E-Lab Tested qualification process is a series of exhaustive performance and reliability tests to ensure the interoperability of all components that make up a multi-vendor information storage network. In addition to EMC’s qualification, the Emulex LP9002DC also earned Microsoft’s WHQL certification for Windows 2000 operating environments.

“In EMC’s E-Labs, engineers replicate customer environments — using 2,600 terabytes of storage across nearly five acres of floor space,” said Chuck Hollis, Vice President of Markets and Products at EMC. “E-Lab Tested assures customers that Emulex HBAs, including the LP9002DC, are fully interoperable with EMC information storage systems, enabling customers to deploy heterogeneous storage networks, quickly reliably and cost-effectively.”

Emulex said its family of Fibre Channel HBAs, including the recently qualified LP9002DC, offers firmware upgradeability and a driver architecture that enables compatibility of a single driver across Emulex’s entire product line.
