QLogic to Present a Simpler Approach to Boosting Application Performance With
Transparent, Adapter-Based Caching in the SAN

ADVISORY, Feb. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

WHO:

QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq:QLGC), a global leader and technology innovator in high
performance networking.

WHAT:

Henrik Hansen, QLogic Director of EMEA Marketing, will present "Enterprise
Application Optimization Using Server-based Storage Accelerators" at Data
Centre World Conference & Expo, the UK's leading data centre event.

Application performance can provide a critical, competitive advantage for
organizations, impacting everything from customer satisfaction to overall
business operations. Most data centre professionals agree the addition of
flash-based solid-state devices (SSDs) is a great way to boost storage and
application performance. What is not as clear is the best location within the
infrastructure for deploying SSD flash storage. The storage system, network
and server are all high performance, low latency options, but are they ready
for mission-critical enterprise deployments?

Hansen will discuss a more efficient, simplified approach for boosting
application performance—transparent, shared SSD/cache integration, such as
QLogic Mt. Rainier technology. He will demonstrate how this new approach
closes the I/O performance gap between server and storage, and will address
the challenges faced by enterprises that are considering the deployment of
flash-based SSD solutions.

WHEN:

Thursday, 28 February
10 a.m.

WHERE:

Data Centre World Conference & Expo
IT Hardware & Big Data Theatre
ExCeL London
London
