management solutions
ECC and other advanced error checking methods to verify the integrity of
firmware upgradeable architecture, to their common driver model, Emulex
SUPERIOR QUALITY AND RELIABILITY— Emulex HBAs deliver industryminimizes components. Emulex HBAs also use a combination of parity, CRC,
data blocks, which are passed from the host interface through the HBA.
• Universal boot provides multi-platform support for remote
SAN boot, offering enhanced server management and
reduced system costs
THE MOST EFFICIENT INSTALLATION AND MANAGEMENT— Emulex
• Detailed, real-time event logging and tracing enables
quick diagnosis of SAN problems
configuration and management. Emulex’s unique Service Level Interface
• RoHS Compliant (Directive 2002/95/EC)
management tools automate installation and provide local and remote HBA
(SLI) architecture allows complete independence of device drivers from HBA
hardware and firmware. That means no reboots during most configuration
changes and no need for OS specific firmware. A single driver model
simplifies management across multiple generations of HBAs. In addition,
Emulex HBAs have a firmware-based architecture that enables feature
and performance upgrades without costly hardware changes, for long-term
investment protection and seamless backward compatibility.

A rich suite of software complements the
LightPulse LP10000 family of enterprise and
midrange-class Fibre Channel HBAs. Setup
programs like Enterprise AutoPilot Installer
streamline the installation of HBA drivers
and management applications to a few
simple commands, and provide customizable
scripting capabilities for both interactive and
automated installations. As a centralized
management suite, HBAnyware incorporates
agent technology that provides discovery, reporting and management of local and remote
HBAs with both in-band Fibre Channel and
out-of-band IP support, enabling sophisticated management capabilities such as remote
firmware upgrades and advanced diagnostics
from a single console anywhere in the SAN.
All Emulex device drivers are fully compatible with previous generations of Emulex
host bus adapters. A single driver binary
supports all Emulex HBAs on a given host
platform, streamlining the management
of device drivers in environments with
multiple generations and versions of HBAs,
simplifying the upgrade process, and providing investment protection.
