LSI Logic Corp. has begun shipping full production single- and dual-port 4Gbps Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) supporting all major operating systems to OEM and channel customers. Built with the Fusion-MPT architecture to speed product adoption, LSI Logic 4Gbps HBAs provide end users implementing 4Gbps Fibre Channel infrastructures, with unsurpassed performance and availability in any storage environment.

The single-port LSI7104XP-LC and dual-port LSI7204XP-LC 4Gbps PCI-X HBAs offer twice the performance of 2Gb/s HBAs at a small premium over 2Gb/s HBAs. Each adapter features 800MBps full duplex Fibre Channel ports, and is capable of performing more than 160,000 I/Os per second. With LSI Logic's 4Gbps HBAs, users transitioning to 4Gbps SANs are assured of investment protection as the HBAs are fully compatible with 1 and 2Gbps legacy products and can automatically detect connection speed so that each port can independently operate at 1, 2 or 4Gbps. LSI Logic's 4Gbps HBAs also support the T10 committee's new end-to-end error detection (CRC) for improved data integrity when reading and writing disks.

Users taking advantage of the LSI Logic 4Gbs HBAs will also be able to leverage the company's MyStorage management software this quarter (Q305). MyStorage provides HBA monitoring, load balancing and path failover protection, and allows IT managers to control and configure any LSI Logic HBA in their SAN in three mouse clicks.
