QLogic Breaks 20,000
ALISO VIEJO, Calif., -- QLogic(r) Corp. (NasdaqNM:QLGC - News), the leader in Fibre Channel blade server embedded switches, today announced the company shipped it's 20,000th switch into the fast growing blade server market. According to IDC(1), blade server embedded switches will be the largest Fibre Channel switch market in terms of ports shipped by 2009, and QLogic was number one in market share for blade server embedded Fibre Channel switches in both ports shipped and revenue in calendar year 2004. ``Infrastructure consolidation delivers huge returns on investment,' said Jesse Parker, vice president of marketing for QLogic Switch Products Group. ``Customers are telling us that server blades with embedded SANs make it easy to consolidate servers and storage.'

"Desai points to several expected high growth areas where QLogic will focus. These include 4-Gbit/s HBAs and switches, iSCSI HBAs, switches and HBA mezzanine cards for blade servers, and iSCSI-to-FC bridges."

This is all old news to most of QLGC investors but I thought it worth repeating that they've got a plan, and they're working their plan.

QLGC an excellant value @ $34.00
