As the Fujitsu World Tour picked up speed this week in Duesseldorf, Germany, we’ve chosen today to announce that our partnership with Fujitsu is also picking up speed. The QLogic Enhanced Gen 5 (16Gb) Fibre Channel (FC) Adapters with QLogic StorFusion™ technology are now available for Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY systems, and in June, will also be available for Fujitsu Server PRIMEQUEST systems. We’ve also launched a new QLogic Fujitsu microsite to support the growing collaboration between our two companies, which provides everything you need to know about the complete portfolio of QLogic solutions for Fujitsu servers, including relevant collateral, product support, driver downloads, and more.


The QLogic QLE2690 single-port and QLE2692 dual-port Enhanced Gen 5 FC HBAs for Fujitsu PRMERGY and PRIMEQUEST systems are designed for virtualized data centers and cloud computing environments that require the ultimate in FC performance, power efficiency, time-to-deployment, reliability, manageability and investment protection, to name a few. Fujitsu servers address very similar customer requirements: Fujitsu PRIMERGY systems provide the most powerful and flexible data center solutions for companies of all sizes, across all industries and for any type of workload. Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST mission-critical servers provide high-end server functionality at supercomputing-level performance with the flexibility and affordability associated with open systems.


The new QLogic Enhanced Gen 5 FC HBAs for Fujitsu servers also support QLogic StorFusion features for smarter SAN management, with comprehensive port diagnostics, rapid provisioning, and guaranteed performance service-level agreements (SLAs) when used in conjunction with Brocade Gen 5 FC Fabric.
