Guest Blog: HP and Emulex at VMworld 2013

By Janice Crucian - Emulex Senior OEM Marketing Manager


VMworld is fast-approaching and that means Emulex is gearing up for our presence out in San Francisco in a couple weeks.    As silver sponsors this year, we are pleased to showcase our presence in booth #505, which includes various ‘pods’ or display stations featuring our strategic partners, like HP. 


The HP station in our booth will highlight our HP-branded Fibre Channel (FC) and 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) technology enabling high performance, and scalable I/O for HP servers and storage.   HP embraces I/O as a strategic decision with its HP storage arrays, HP 8Gb and 16Gb Fibre Channel (8GFC and 16GFC) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs), and HP FlexFabric adapters for 10GbE, including protocol offload processing for FC over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI and TCP/IP.   


HP partners with Emulex to deliver intelligent I/O solutions to support the latest technologies and meet the service-level agreements (SLAs) of your customers. Along with FC and iSCSI connectivity for HP 3PAR, LeftHand, iBRIX and StoreOnce Storage, HP also deploys LAN on Motherboard (LOM) cards known as HP FlexFabric adapters.    


We’ll have experts in the Emulex booth available to speak with you about all these HP/Emulex solutions!


Additionally, Brent Allen, Manager of Product Management for HP Converged Systems Group of HP, will be speaking in the Emulex booth on Wednesday, August 28th, at 1 p.m.   


The theater session is titled, “Virtualize your I/O with HP and Emulex Converged Networking Solutions,” which speaks to the joint HP/Emulex converged I/O solutions that optimize scalability and performance required by today’s virtualization environments.     Don’t miss how the HP FlexFabric technology with 10GbE FlexibleLOM provided by Emulex is a key I/O enabler of the latest HP VirtualSystem VS3 2.2 for VMware release! 


Stop by our Emulex booth # 505 and visit us – we hope to see you in San Francisco!
