LSI7204EP Logic
Dual Channel 4Gb/s Fibre Channel PCIe Host Bus Adapter

Used | OWC Tested

PC / Linux / Fibre Channel / PCIe
Faster Server to San Connectivity
Improved Data Protection
Delivers Unsurpassed Performance
LSI's 4Gb/s Fibre Channel PCI Express adapter series fulfills virtually any storage connection need or environment, whether data mining, video and media streaming, or high availability. These adapters were engineered to deliver unequaled performance, high port density, easy installation, as well as accommodating PCI Express host platforms.
Guards Past Investments While Providing Advanced Data Protection
Each adapter features full-duplex capable FC ports, that automatically detect connection speed, and can each independently operate at 1, 2 or 4Gb/s. The ability to operate at slower speeds ensures that these adapters remain fully compatible with legacy equipment. All adapters also support new end-to-end error detection (CRC) for improved data integrity when reading or writing disks. The AN SI T10 committee developed and endorses this new protection standard.
MyStorage Management Software
MyStorage Management Software is a host software package designed to simplify management of LSI Fibre Channel adapters. New users will appreciate the simple, threeclick installation and its "auto-everything" intelligence. Advanced users will find the utility provides all the features to finetune the adapter operation for specific applications in even the most complex SAN environments. MyStorage software is prefigured with ease of use in mind, whether you're deploying a simple SAN for mid-range applications or a more complex enterprise data center.
Fusion-MPT Architecture
These Fibre Channel host adapters use LSI's powerful FC949E controller, which implements the Fusion-MPT (Message Passing Technology) architecture. Each controller features multiple, embedded ARM® processors that deliver maximum host CPU offload. The built-in intelligence enables LSI to publish a single OS driver to operate any Fusion-MPT controller or adapter. Fusion-MPT enables LSI to quickly offer new adapters with a rich compliment of OS drivers, each with proven track records and years of successful run time.
