Overview Features Specifications Warranty
Full Fibre Channel Compatibility

The FibreQuik PC4000 is compatible with 1, 2, and 4 Gigabit Fibre Channel hubs, switches, tape libraries, JBOD and RAID disk storage arrays. It comes standard with mature AIX, Linux or Windows software drivers, supports the SCSI Fibre Channel Protocol, and connects in any topology. The PC4000 conforms to PCI -X 266 specification and is fully compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit PCI busses.

The FibreQuik Performance Edge

The FibreQuik PC4000, supports Fibre Channel data transfer rates of 400 MB/s in each direction on each port, and operates two to five times faster than the SCSI interfaces used in most storage servers today. The PC4000 architecture feature five independent DMA channels for commands and data to reduce the latency as well as independent send and receive frame buffers for full duplex operation. To minimize CPU utilization and optimize application performance, an embeded RISC processor can execute multiple SCSI I/O commands generating no more than one interrupt per I/O operation.

High Availability Storage with Double Speed

Cambex has developed Dynamic Path Failover (DPF) software for use with its FibreQuik adapter family to provide higher performance and availability in mission-critical AIX environments. DPF combined with two FibreQuik PC4000s in each host server provides full data availability in the event of an adapter, cable, RAID controller or other storage path failure. When configured for dual adapter connectivity to a common Fibre Channel disk array the Active-Active data rate can be effectively doubled to 1.6 GBPS.
