1 Overview StorageWorks U320 SCSI Adapters 64-Bit/133-MHz Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter B21 Performance Designed as to be as flexible as HP s legendary servers, the HP StorageWorks U320 SCSI adapter provides support for up to 28 SCSI devices, while only taking up a single PCI-X slot. The HP U320 adapter delivers exceptional system performance, along with up to two separate Ultra320 SCSI channels that each provide up to 64-bit/133-MHz bus-master capabilities, transferring data as fast as 320 MB/s between storage subsystem and system memory. HP Server Integration: Fully integrated and tested with most ProLiant servers and management software. Tagged Command Queuing: Improves performance by accepting commands simultaneously, sorting efficiently and minimizing response time. Suggested Solutions: HP s U320 dual channel adapter is ideal for high-end tape, tape automation and disk storage solutions such as the SLDT 110 and 160 tape drives, LTO Ultrium tape drives, both ESL and MSL Series Libraries, and the StorageWorks 43xx Enclosure. Fault Tolerance Supports software-based fault tolerant configurations available under Microsoft Windows NT, Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP, Linux and NetWare. Compatibility Fully integrated and tested with most ProLiant servers and management software. See list of servers with each adapter specifications. Option Kit Contents Adapter Installation Guide Warranty Card Support Software CD RTF Card Warranty Maximum: The remaining warranty of the HP product in which it is installed (to a maximum three-year limited warranty). Minimum: One-year, on-site limited warranty. NOTE: Certain restrictions and exclusions apply. Consult the HP Customer Support Center at for details. DA North America Version 1 January 21,
