Emulex Corp was organized as a California corporation in 1979 and changed its state of incorporation from California to Delaware in 1987. The Company is a provider of network convergence solutions that connect servers, storage and networks within the data center. Its product portfolio of Host Bus Adapters (HBAs), Converged Network Adapters (CNAs), mezzanine cards for blade servers, and embedded storage bridges, routers, switches and Input/Output Controllers (IOCs) are proven, tested and trusted by the world's largest and most demanding Information Technology (IT) environments. Emulex's Host Server Products (HSP) include both Fibre Channel (FC) based connectivity products and Enhanced Ethernet based products that support Internet Protocol (IP) and storage networking, including Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)/IP, Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI), Network Attached Storage (NAS), IOC solutions, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). The Company's Fibre Channel based products include LightPulse(r) HBAs, custom form factor solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) blade servers and ASICs. These products enable servers to efficiently connect to Fibre Channel storage area networks (SANs) by offloading data communication processing tasks from the server as information is delivered and sent to the storage network. The Company's Enhanced Ethernet based products include OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapters (UCNAs) that enable true network convergence. The Company's Embedded Storage Products (ESP) include its InSpeed(r), FibreSpy(r), switch-on-a-chip (SOC), bridge products, and router products. Embedded storage switches, bridges, routers, and IOCs are deployed inside storage arrays, tape libraries, and other storage appliances that connect storage controllers to storage capacity delivering improved performance, reliability, and storage connectivity. The Company's other category mainly consists of contract engineering services, legacy and other products. It sells its products worldwide to OEMs, end users, and through other distribution channels including value added resellers (VARs), systems integrators, industrial distributors, and resellers. The Company's main competitors for HBA and CNA products are QLogic Corporation (QLogic).
