If you’re looking into an HBA (host bus adaptor) you’re looking at devices that allow communication between your server or computer, and your network. HBAs assist the processor by relieving the unit of data storage and some retrieval tasks. In this way, an HBA can aid in improving your server’s performance. HBAs are similar with network interface cards (NICs), but NICs are specifically built to interact with an Ethernet network.
HBAs can communicate between storage devices, storage systems, or servers, allowing you to integrate your units. Performance of host bus adaptor depends on the speed rate. For example, a gigabit per second adaptor will perform more slowly than an 8 gigabit per second HBA. It is important to consider the necessary speed for your data transference when selecting a host bus adaptor that’s right for you.
