QLogic shares closed as high as $17.99 on March 26, but then joined many companies watching their stocks fall after the first quarter. Shares fell below the $10 mark in mid-October and stayed there through the end of 2012. Meanwhile, last September, the company introduced its "Mt. Rainier" technology that puts high-speed SSD storage on a SAN host bus adapter to allow multiple servers to share their flash-based cache.
