Marketing Information

The QLogic® 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters support simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fibre Channel over Ethernet [FCoE] and iSCSI) traffic at 10Gbps Ethernet (GbE) line rate speeds. The 8400 Series provides extremely low host CPU usage by enabling full hardware offloads.

The 8400 Series leverages QLogic's long-standing industry leadership in Ethernet by providing the highest levels of performance, efficiency, and scalability for the enterprise data center.

For more effective utilization of the 10GbE bandwidth, the QLogic 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters offer switch-independent NIC partitioning (network partitioning [NPAR]), which enables segmentation of a single 10GbE port into multiple network partitions and dynamic allocation of bandwidth to each port. The segmentation allows IT organizations to optimize resource utilization while lowering infrastructure and operational costs.
