There are a lot of questions that people ask regarding Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), especially Multihop FCoE, and what happens when you put it into place inside the Data Center. For the most part, the questions have involved two particular threads: architecture and performance:
- What are my options with FCoE?
- Where can FCoE fit into my Data Center?
- Is there a performance penalty for running FCoE?
- How do Fibre Channel, FCoE, and iSCSI compare?
Demartek, a third-party research and analysis corporation, recently published an evaluation on Cisco’s Multiprotocol Connectivity and Multi-Topology solutions, which found that not only were the topology configurations extremely flexible for many different types of environments, but also found that even with multiple switches, multihop FCoE topologies can provide excellent performance within the Data Center.
Dennis Martin, founder and President of Demartek, will be presenting these findings and discussing his impressions of the technology in a live, public webinar, Thursday, August 9, at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT. We encourage you to attend to learn more about how these different technologies can fit inside the data center.
