IBM Selects QLogic Enterprise Switch Module for IBM eServer BladeCenter
ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Sept. 14, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq:QLGC), the company that powers storage area networks (SANs), today introduced the Switch Module for IBM eServer(r) BladeCenter(tm) servers. The ultra-compact switch features three times the port density of any other switch module available today. Now, instead of using dual-switch module ports only for inter-switch links (ISLs) to external switch boxes, BladeCenter systems uniquely provide enough ports to support connection of external disk and tape - in many cases eliminating the cost of external switches. For customers deploying large numbers of BladeCenter systems, the new switchblade simplifies the most complex switch configuration tasks with wizard-based installation and zoning. The QLogic Enterprise Switch Module is available now for BladeCenter and IBM eServer BladeCenter T chassis.
