People might also be interested in looking at the Emulex LP6000 and
LP7000 cards. Maybe (*big* maybe) I'll have a chance to check one out.
Yes- the Emulex cards look good- more from an FC/IP point of view
from what I've heard, and also JAYCOR. And, still to be worth
doing, SOCAL SBus cards for the sparc port (:-)).
Digital/Compaq also uses them (the LP6000) to drive FCAL RAID arrays.
The LP7000 has a considerable performance advantage and is supposed
to be compatible on the driver level.
The big issue with all of this will be fabric and multipathing
device naming support. This kind of stuff is basically my charter
at NASA/Ames for a chunk of the next year.
Ughh. Good luck. This is mainly vapourware at the moment.
Yes, and no. The actual hardware support is coming along and even
the f/w support for fabric logins are around. It just becomes a bit
of a pissing match in the OS arena on how to do this.
