ARVADA, CO--(Marketwired - Aug 26, 2013) - Demartek announces its evaluation of the HP StoreFabric SN1000E 16Gb Fibre Channel HBA.

"SSD is changing how every application is deployed and graded for performance and responsiveness. In this report, Demartek demonstrates how the next generation of the I/O delivery model based on PCI-e 3.0, SSD and Gen 5 FC are providing measurable benefits and scale to data center applications," said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development, Emulex. "IT shops are under constant pressure to scale business applications and improve operational efficiency. This report shows IT managers how to make their internal and external customer more productive and effective."

"In our database workload test, the HP StoreFabric SN1000E 16Gb Fibre Channel HBA doubled the peak throughput, reduced latency by more than 50% and completed the workload 26% faster than the previous generation 8Gb Fibre Channel HBA," said Dennis Martin, Demartek President. "We have concluded that faster storage networking technology such as Gen 5 Fibre Channel is well-suited to SSD technology, which is being embraced in an increasing number of enterprise datacenters."
