There is NO documentation out there. The companies don't offer any help on their products, and there aren't text books or anything. I want to set up a storage link between my desktop and my file server. I am here because I will not settle for gigabit, so I need something like FC or a 10 gigabit NIC. I'd rather go with fibre, but I can't find any information as to what products will work with what OS, and for the target side, if their drivers even allow them to be targets. There is no information on setting anything up, and I'm guessing these things have proprietary stuff for setting them up.
The desktop is Windows 7, and the server will be whatever kind of Linux will conform to running one of these cards nicely while still being able to handle my video encoding tasks (at the shell level, I don't need a GUI). The cards I am looking at are QLE220. When I research most of the cards on eBay, they are all old, and drivers were only updated to 2008, so that leaves out Windows 7 and most new Linux. Please advise!
