QLogic at VeeamON 2014
QLogic develops SAN technologies to improve enterprise server and network performance in virtualized, converged, and cloud environments. QLogic offers adapters, switches, and ASICs, and serves as Veeam’s only certified fabric partner. Our latest Gen 5 HBAs can be matched with Veeam’s data protection software in order to provide backup and recovery for data center VMs, guest OS files, and applications.
By combining QLogic HBAs with Veeam software in a Fibre Channel environment, our clients can reduce the amount of data at risk by using storage snapshots and frequents backups over a high performance FC network. Using QLogic Fibre Channel HBAs with Veeam software can relieve I/O multi-pathing and CPU cycles from VMware or Hyper-V infrastructure by leveraging HBAs and the underlying storage network to handle backup and replication tasks.
Gen 5 QLogic HBAs are supported with Veeam software in environments running vSphere 4 and higher or Hyper-V 2008 R2 and higher and major guest operating systems including Apple, CITRIX, Linux, NetWare, Solaris, VMware and Windows.
