In general, the company has had significant improvements, where the software has allowed us to have a more fluid and, above all, stable communication system. For many things, I would recommend it, from its level of efficiency to how easy it can be to manipulate it. With a simple implementation. Much faster and cleaner service.

Do you need to combine the functionality of a NIC (Ethernet/iSCSI) and Fibre Channel HBA onto a single adapter and reducing the number of adapters and cables and space used as well as a [reduction] in operational, power and cooling costs while preserving your existing Ethernet and Fibre Channel infrastructure? Then look into HP SF CNA's, they are a great fit in most data centers. HP StoreFabric CNA's have undergone HPE interoperability testing for connecting HPE ProLiant servers into storage and networking environments.

      When using UCS B-Series, there is no real other choice. For implementations leveraging UCS C-Series, we evaluated based on what connectivity is available, the power of the VIC's really comes when connecting to a UCS Fabric Interconnect, though they can be used standalone. When using standalone, unless implementing to increase the number of physical ports, there are more cost effective options such as the Intel X540.

      When optimizing ethernet and fiber topos, performance is always key. HP SF CNA's outperform every other hardware platform we tested. Add in the dependability of the HP SF CNA's specifically and HPE generally then you can see why we chose HP StoreFabric CNA's.
