Marvell QLogic 2600 Series Fibre Channel Controllers

Enhanced Gen 5 FC (16GFC) fibre channel contgrollers providing industry leading native FC performance with low CPU usage and full hardware offloads

2600 FC Controllers

The Marvell® QLogic® 2600 series controllers are enhanced Gen 5 (16Gb) Fibre Channel controllers available in dual-port and quad-port. Used for initiator- or target-mode implementations, these controllers deliver the ultimate in Fibre Channel performance, power utilization, reliability, and investment protection. The 2600 Series provides up to 2.6 million I/O operations per second (IOPS)—almost two times the IOPS of previous Gen 5 Fibre Channel controllers—and optimal load balancing and per port linear performance scalability. QLogic’s port-isolation design provides independent data paths for each port, running full line rate with up to 12,000 MB per second.

Key Features
