HP Single Channel Ultra320 SCSI G1/G2 HBA - Overview

Product description

The HP 64-bit/133-MHz Single Channel Ultra320 SCSI HBA is ideal for larger non-RAID storage applications. This PCI-X adapter supports Ultra 320 SCSI, Wide Ultra3 SCSI, and Wide Ultra2 SCSI protocols. It is the primary building block for non-RAID SCSI storage solutions that perform HP tape array backup operations or JBOD file and print applications. Neither application requires fault tolerance but both have large bandwidth requirements.


Product Features

HP Integration
HP's U320 single channel adapter is a cost effective, Non-Hot-Plug SCSI HBA solution, that is fully integrated and tested with HP ProLiant 100 series servers, ProLiant 300 series servers, HP DAT tape drives, Ultrium tape drives, SDLT tape drives and DAT autoloaders.
The HP U320 adapter delivers exceptional system performance, along with one Ultra320 SCSI channel that provides up to 64-bit/133-MHz bus-master capabilities, transferring data up to 320 MB/s between storage subsystem and system memory.
