The Emulex 8Gb Fiber Channel Expansion Card (CIOv) for IBM BladeCenter enables high-performance connection to a Storage Area Network (SAN). Thanks to the innovative design of the IBM BladeCenter midplane - this Fiber Channel adapter operates without needing an optical transceiver module - saving you significant hardware costs. Each adapter provides dual paths to the SAN switches to ensure full redundancy. Meanwhile the exclusive firmware-based architecture allows firmware and features to be upgraded without taking the server offline or rebooting and without needing to upgrade the driver.
