Lenovo Flex System FC3052 2-port 8GB Fiber Channel Adapter

Brand: Lenovo
Model Number: FS-FC3052-2-port-FCA

Solve Your Networking Problems

The network architecture on the Flex System platform has been specifically designed to address network challenges, giving you a scalable way to integrate, optimize, and automate your data center. The Flex System™ FC3052 2-port 8GB Fiber Channel Adapter enables high-speed access for Flex System compute nodes to an external storage area network (SAN). This adapter is based on the proven Emulex Fiber Channel stack and works with any of the 8GB or 16 GB Flex System Fiber Channel switch and pass-thru modules.

Flex System FC3052 2-port 8GB Fiber Channel Adapter

Based on the proven Emulex Fiber Channel stack, it works with any of the 8GB or 16GB Flex System Fiber Channel switch modules. Can double throughput speeds for Fiber Channel traffic.

Simple Installation and Management

  • Based on the Emulex "Saturn" 8Gb Fiber Channel I/O Controller (IOC) chip
  • Multifunction PCIe 2.0 device with two independent FC ports
  • Auto-negotiation between 2-GBps, 4-GBps, or 8-GBps FC link attachments
  • Complies with the PCIe base and CEM 2.0 specifications
  • Enablement of high-speed and dual-port connection to a Fiber Channel SAN
  • Comprehensive virtualization capabilities with support for N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) and Virtual Fabric
  • Simplified installation and configuration using common HBA drivers
  • Common driver model that eases management and enables upgrades independent of HBA firmware

Fiber Channel Specifications:

  • Burst transfer rate of up to 1600 MBps full-duplex per port
  • Support for point-to-point fabric connection: F-Port Fabric Login
  • Support for Fiber Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL) and FCAL-2 FL-Port Login
  • Support for Fiber Channel services class 2 and 3
  • Single-chip design with two independent 8 GBps serial Fiber Channel ports
  • Onboard DMA
  • Frame buffer first in, first out (FIFO): Integrated transmit and receive frame buffer for each data channel
  • Support for Fabric Manager
  • Support for UEFI
  • Uses same FC/FCoE drivers as Flex System CN4054 10Gb Virtual Fabric Adapter

Did You Know?

The performance bottleneck with Fiber Channel storage typically exists in the switching. By moving to 8GB adapters and switches, you can localize the bottleneck to the storage controller, where it can be managed by expanding the disks attached to storage. When compared to the previous generation 4GB adapters, the new generation 8GB adapters double the throughput speeds for Fiber Channel traffic. As a result, you can manage increased amounts of data and possibly benefit from a reduced hardware expense.

The adapter connects to the midplane directly, without having to use cables or small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules. By eliminating these components for up to 14 servers, the resulting savings alone can cover the investment in the chassis.
