Traded in other countries:QLG.Germany
QLogic Corporation was organized as a Delaware corporation in 1992. The Company is a designer and supplier of network infrastructure products that provide, enhance and manage computer data communication. These products facilitate the rapid transfer of data and enable efficient resource sharing between servers, networks and storage. Its products are used in enterprise data centers, cloud computing, Web 2.0 and other environments dependent on high performance, reliable data networking. Its products are based mainly on Fibre Channel and Ethernet technologies and are used in connection with storage networks, local area networks, and converged networks. Storage networks are used to provide data across enterprise environments. Fibre Channel is currently the dominant technology for enterprise storage networking. Local area networks, or LANs, are used to provide workstation-to-server, server-to-server, and server-to-storage connectivity using Ethernet. Converged networks are designed to address the evolving data center by consolidating and unifying various classes of connectivity and networks, such as storage area networks and LANs, using Ethernet speeds of 10Gb per second and greater. Fibre Channel over Ethernet, or FCoE, is a converged networking technology that uses an Ethernet LAN for both storage and local area data transmission, thus combining the benefits of Fibre Channel technology with the pervasiveness of Ethernet-based networks. Internet Small Computer System Interface, or iSCSI, is an alternative to FCoE, also providing storage over Ethernet capabilities. Its converged products can operate individually as 10Gb Ethernet network products, FCoE products, iSCSI products, or in combination as multi-protocol products. Its products are sold worldwide, mainly to original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, and distributors. Its customers rely on its various networking infrastructure products to deliver solutions to information technology professionals in virtually every business sector. Its products are found mainly in server and storage subsystem solutions that are used by small, medium and large enterprises with critical business data requirements. Its products mainly consist of adapters, switches, storage routers and application-specific integrated circuits, or ASICs. Adapters reside in a server and provide for connectivity of host computer servers to data and storage networks. Switches and storage routers manage the transmission and routing of data between servers and storage, as well as servers to servers. The ASICs that it sells are used in servers, storage systems and switches. ASICs used in servers in certain embedded applications are referred to as converged LAN on Motherboard, or cLOMs. All of these adapters and ASICs provide multi-protocol network connectivity. It classifies its products into three broad categories: Host Products, Network Products and Silicon Products. Host Products consist of Fibre Channel adapters, iSCSI a
