Introduction
The Flex System FC5172 2-port 16Gb FC Adapter enables high-speed access for Flex System compute nodes to connect to a Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN). This adapter is based on the proven QLogic 16Gb ASIC design and works with the 8 Gb and 16 Gb Flex System Fibre Channel switches and pass-thru modules.

Did you know?
These QLogic adapter supports nearly twice the throughput and 2.5 times the I/O operations per second (IOPS) per port compared to 8 Gb adapters. The adapter is ideal for high bandwidth and I/O-intensive applications, such as media streaming, backup/recovery, data warehousing, OLTP, Microsoft Exchange Server, and server virtualization. Through rigorous testing carried out using the ServerProven program, you can maintain a high degree of confidence that your storage subsystem is compatible and functions reliably when using this Flex System adapter.
Abstract
The Emulex 16Gb Fibre Channel Adapter family for Lenovo Flex System enables the highest FC speed access for Flex System compute nodes to an external storage area network (SAN). The adapters described here are the Emulex LPm16002B-L and LPm16004B-L Mezz Adapters and the Flex System FC5052 and FC5054 Adapters. These adapters are based on the proven Emulex Fibre Channel stack, and work with 16 Gb Flex System Fibre Channel switch modules.

Introduction
  • The Emulex 16Gb Fibre Channel Adapter family for Lenovo Flex System enables the highest FC speed access for Flex System compute nodes to an external storage area network (SAN). These adapters are based on the proven Emulex Fibre Channel stack, and work with 16 Gb Flex System Fibre Channel switch modules.
  • As the only 4-port HBAs for Flex System and ThinkSystem respectively, the FC5054 and LPm16004B-L provide unmatched scalability and redundancy. In addition, these two 4-port adapters have two separate ASICs with no bridge chip, so data flows directly to an independent PCIe bus for high availability without a single point of failure.

Did you know?
You can deploy faster and manage less when you combine Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) and Virtual Fabric Adapters (VFAs) that are developed by Emulex. Lenovo HBAs and VFAs use the same installation and configuration process, streamlining the effort to get your system up and running, and saving you valuable time. They also use the same Fibre Channel drivers, reducing the time to qualify and manage storage connectivity. And with the Emulex OneCommand Manager, you can manage Lenovo HBAs and VFAs that are developed by Emulex through the data center from a single console.

I/O module support
  • The adapters support the I/O modules that are listed in the following table. One or two compatible switches must be installed in the corresponding I/O bays in the chassis. Installing two switches means that all ports of the adapter are enabled.
  • The FC5022 switches include a base number of port licenses, 12 or 24, depending on the part number that is ordered. Switch port licenses for the FC5022 switches can be used for internal or external ports. Each two-port adapter requires one internal switch port for each of the two switches that are installed. Each four-port adapter requires two internal switch ports for each of the two switches that are installed. Additional ports might be needed depending on your configuration.
