Costa Mesa-based Emulex is reporting that its Sun Microsystems-branded HBAs have been qualified by Sun for use in the popular VMware ESX Server virtualization environment. Emulex said that its 2 Gb/s and 4 Gb/s Lightpulse Host Bus Adapters, used for connecting Fibre Channel storage to computer systems, work with the ESX Server environment.
