According to QLogic NetXtremeII presentation and data sheet the named cards support Ethernet, iSCSI, and FCoE. That does not include plain FC, unfortunately. FC as a whole is a different low-level protocol than Ethernet. FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) replaces layers FC0 and FC1 of the FC specification with Ethernet while retaining layers FC2 - FC3 - ...

This is a known problem with tape drives, and the way that they are trivially-easy to rewind merely by looking sideways at the device (ie, opening it in the wrong way - via the rewinding device - just eg to check status). At least one major piece of UNIX backup software is so worried by this that it simply refuses to write to a tape a second time until that ...

I been using Veeam in our HP dl380 environment for 2 years now. It works perfectly across all networks, hardware, and host os. I have everything on VMWare and as long as your replication site is in VMWare you can use whatever hardware you want.
