Emulex announces LightPulse Virtual HBA for VI3

Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced that its LightPulse(r) Virtual Host Bus Adapter (HBA) technology, with industry-standard N-Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) support, is integrated into the latest release of VMware Infrastructure, announced today. Industry-standard NPIV enables end users to leverage the benefits of combining server virtualization with traditional storage area network (SAN) best practices in their data centers. This represents a first major innovation delivered from VMware's Community Source program, and reflects Emulex's collaboration with VMware on this technology.

Emulex's LightPulse Virtual HBA technology, composed of Emulex 4Gb/s Fibre Channel HBAs and NPIV driver technology, enables customers to effectively 'virtualize' SAN connections so that each virtual machine has independent access to its own protected storage. In addition, Emulex LightPulse Virtual HBA technology enables storage and SAN fabric administrators to manage connections from virtualized machines in the same way, and with the same tools, as traditional physical hardware-based servers. The end result is greater storage security, enhanced management and migration of virtual machines and the ability to implement SAN best practices such as LUN-masking and zoning for individual virtual machines.
