  17. 17. What the numbers mean The Emulex LPe16002 delivers • 5X the IOPS over previous generation in 16GFC SAN • Almost 2X IOPS over previous generation in 8GFC SAN • Faster response times (OLTP)  Half the I/O response for 8GFC  ¼ the I/O response for 16GFC© 2012 Enterprise Strategy Group 17
  18. 18. Why This Matters • Fibre Channel is still widely used  Investment protection • Virtualized environments need performance  VM densities and faster processors • Ability to handle greater multi tenant environments  NPIV • Greater visibility  Integration with VMware vCenter  OneCommand Vision© 2012 Enterprise Strategy Group 18
  19. 19. ESG Lab highlights • Seamless integration with existing HBAs and tool  Emulex OneCommand Manager & older gen HBAs • Full featured VMware vCenter Plug-in  Batch firmware upgrades from vCenter • Simplified management and maintenance  Leverages previous generation drivers • Five times the performance (OLTP IOPS) and more than 50% reduction in I/O response© 2012 Enterprise Strategy Group 19
  20. 20. Summary • Continued drive towards virtualization and private clouds • VM densities and mixed workload strain existing capabilities • I/O becomes more strategic • 16Gb Fibre Channel will play a major role for organizations • Emulex LPe16002 is more than a bandwidth bump, it is a significant leap forward in performance.© 2012 Enterprise Strategy Group 20
