"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

QLE2464 Host Bus Adapter

The QLE2464 is the industry's first, true enterprise class, 4-Gbps to PCI Express x8 HBA. The QLE2464 not only delivers unprecedented levels of performance and availability, but also intelligent networking features specific to enterprise class data centers.

Enterprise Class Features

The QLE2464 HBA is the highest performing and most reliable HBA in the industry. It delivers unmatched performance, combining a unique hardware architecture to deliver over 150,000 IOPS per port, nearly 3.2 GBps throughput, and support for PCI Express x8 bus speeds. More importantly, the QLE2464 HBA provides new intelligent storage networking features that redefine the enterprise class HBA, providing increased data protection, advanced frame routing, and enterprise wide management capabilities.

Simplified Setup

Point-and-click installation and configuration wizards simply the HBA setup process. Storage administrators can quickly deploy HBAs across a SAN using standard HBA management tools and device utilities. The QLE2464 is also fully compatible with industry standard application programming interfaces (APIs), including SNIA HBA API and SMI-S, thereby allowing administrators to manage QLogic HBAs using third-party software applications.

Comprehensive Operating System (OS) Support

QLogic offers the broadest range of support for all major operating systems to ensure OS and hardware server compatibility. Drivers are fully tested and available for all major operating systems and hardware server platforms. A single driver strategy per OS allows storage administrators to easily deploy and manage HBAs in heterogeneous SAN configurations.

Guaranteed Interoperability

Storage partner certifications, combined with agency and regulatory testing, ensures all products meet world compliance hardware and software specifications. All HBAs are tested extensively with third-party hardware, along with multiple software applications, to ensure best-in-class SAN interoperability and compatibility. You can be confident purchasing QLogic HBAs to meet your FC storage networking needs.

Investment Protection

For over 15 years, QLogic has been a technological leader with products that address the current needs of customers, yet provide strong investment protection to support emerging technologies and standards. QLogic stands alone in the industry, its product portfolio depth and experience in successfully delivering technological solutions that address the needs of today and tomorrow.
