LSI Logic Fibre Channel HBAs Certified By Spectra Logic

LSI Logic Corporation announced the certification today of its Fusion-MPT based LSI44929-O and LSI40919-O host bus adapters (HBAs) with Spectra Logic's enterprise-class Spectra 12000 and 64000 tape libraries.

"Certification of our HBAs with Spectra Logic's enterprise-class tape libraries underlines our commitment to high-performance customer solutions," said Robert Anderson, LSI Logic's HBA group director. "Interoperability of 2 Gbit SAN components enables customers to deploy high performance, reliable and robust SAN solutions. Having Spectra Logic certify the LSI Logic 2 Gbit HBAs demonstrates our ongoing commitment to building the 2 Gbit SAN infrastructure."

"The interoperability of SAN components still continues to be the driving force in providing ease of installation and cost-effective SAN architectures," said Sharon Isaacson, Spectra Logic's library product manager. "Spectra Logic fully supports the LSI Logic 2 Gbit Fibre Channel HBAs and their commitment to deliver interoperable SAN-based tape backup solutions."

LSI Logic said its Fusion-MPT (Message Passing Technology) 64-bit Fibre Channel HBAs are ideal for high-performance SAN applications such as tape backup. Both the single channel LSI40919-O and the dual channel LSI44929-O operate at speeds up to 2 Gbit and are fully backward compatible with the existing 1 Gbit SAN infrastructure.
