QLogic 8Gb Fibre Channel Expansion Card (CIOv) for IBM BladeCenter
IBM Part# 44X1945
CIOv (Combination I/O connection for vertical switch bays) cards provide I/O connection to vertically oriented I/O switch module bays in IBM BladeCenter H, S, and E chassis and can be used in combination with CFFh cards (Combination form factor adapters for BladeCenter H horizontal switch bays).
The Emulex and QLogic 8 Gb Fiber Channel Expansion Cards (CIOv) for IBM BladeCenter enable high-speed access for IBM blade servers to connect to a Fiber Channel Storage Area Network (SAN). In addition to enabling the benefits of the PCIe architecture, these adapters are both based on the innovative CIOv form factor, which means that the blade server can also support additional I/O technologies such as additional NIC, Fiber, InfiniBand, and other adapters.
