The IBM® Flex SystemT FC5052 2-port and FC5054 4-port 16Gb FC Adapters enable 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 HBA for IBM Flex System, the FC5054 provides unmatched scalability and redundancy. In addition, the FC5054 has 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. It also allows for logical partitioning on IBM Power SystemsT compute nodes. The following figure shows the IBM Flex System FC5054 4-port 16Gb FC Adapter.
