People need to understand that the card used for backup to a VTL need
not meet the same specs as the cards (Always more than 1!) doing the I/O
to your SAN. So instead of purchase the latest Quad Port 16Gb or faster
FC card for your tape library acquire a used one on the market.
For Direct connections we have often used the FC #5774 4G card and never
see it maxed out on small systems. Today I would go FC #5735 which is 8G
on newer systems because it's twice as fast and still almost silly cheap
on used market. If you need NPIV then the FC #5735 is the way to go for
AND it IS COVERED by your maintenance contract! It is a "no brainer."

Sounds very interesting but since I don't have (and don't want to invest in) FC, it's not so very much interesting for saving i stuff to me.
