BiTMICRO Networks Inc. has announced the qualification of its E-Disk SAN S2F-J with the QLA2340 and QLA2342 host bus adapters (HBAs) from Qlogic Corp.

Benchmark tests were conducted at BiTMICRO's in Fremont, California. Using a SuperMicro SuperServer with a dual Xeon 2.6GHz CPU and 1GB DDR-266 memory as host, lab engineers attached a QLogic dual-port QLA2342 to an E-Disk SAN S2F-J equipped with twelve 2Gb E-Disk fiber channel SSDs. IOmeter test results show that both products were able to deliver an outstanding 112,000 IOPS (max), sequential read rates of up to 681MBps and sequential write rates of up to 403MBps. Sustained random rates peaked at 560MBps for reads and 257MBps for writes.

QLogic's single-port QLA2340 and the dual-port QLA2342 are 64bit, 133MHz PCI-X to fiber channel HBAs that offer 2Gb performance for SAN and other fiber channel applications. On the other hand, the E-Disk SAN S2F-J is the foundation of BiTMICRO's 2U rackmount fiber channel solid state disk (SSD) product line.
