11 Adapter of Choice for Oracle Customers In the past year alone, Oracle has shipped 72,861 Oracle- branded QLogic adapters Selected by top Fortune 500 customers

12 Why QLogic: The Ultimate in Performance Leader in real-world performance for Oracle database Benchmark running on Oracle Relational Database Management System (RDBMS)* *Running on Microsoft® Windows® 2003 Enterprise Edition with Service Pack 2. The tool used for predicting the performance of the Oracle database under-load was Orion from Oracle Across all three workloads (OLTP, Web and OLAP), QLogic’s performance averaged 98 percent better than the competition Ensures reduced response time of mission critical applications and backup time-windows

13 Full Hardware Offload = Improved System Performance The lowest CPU utilization in the industry Requires an average of 9% CPU utilization Competitors Choke CPU utilization up to 90% Improves server performance by freeing up the server CPU to other tasks 13 More bandwidth for multiple VMs and apps all on a single server

14 FC Adapter of Choice for Oracle Database For Optimized Database Solutions tested configurations, the Oracle 8Gb FC adapters powered by QLogic were the adapter of choice for Oracle Database BOMs Optimized Solutions for Database BOM Processors Warranty Servers Storage

15 Market-leading performance to meet the demands of all virtualized applications High Performance VMflex supports multiple virtual connections sharing the same physical port Flexible and Adaptable Fully supported and tested with Oracle VM 3.0 for ease of installation and turn-key deployment Assured Integration Improve consolidation and efficiency to reduce cost and overall IT resources Lower TCO, IT Footprint Optimized for Oracle VM 3.0

16 The Ultimate in Business Resiliency QLogic’s Overlapping Protection Domains (OPDs) Provides overlapping parity and cyclic redundancy checking F RAME B UFFER FC I NTERFACE M ODULE H OST B US I NTERFACE M ODULE FC CRC PCI Parity / ECC Byte Parity FC CRC Byte Parity PCI Parity / ECC OPD PCI Bus Fibre Channel CRC = Cyclic Redundancy Check ECC = Error Correction Code Data moving from FC to Host Bus Data moving from Host Bus to FC

17 Why Oracle Networking Powered by QLogic: FCoE Converged Network Adapters 17

18 FCoE CNAs Customer Advantages 18 02/10/10 Data center simplification = Reduced TCO Decreases the quantity of adapters, edge switches, and cabling Lowers power, cooling, and management costs. Preservation of familiar data and storage networking concepts eliminates future training costs 60% Reduction in Networking Infrastructure Lower OpEx with up to 40% with a reduction in power consumption due to consolidation

19 The Proof is Clear With convergence, cabling is cut in half and cabling management is simplified resulting in overall reduced OPEX! Traditional NetworkConverged Network Ethernet Switch FC Switch FCoE Switches

20 The Proof is Clear 20 TCO Results Over Four Year Time Period In just four years, a converged network can save up to 33% in costs (over $3 million)
