I’ve spoken frequently here about the benefits of a Unified Fabric in the data center. I’ve discussed CapEx and OpEx savings associated with reduced number of devices, adaptors, and cables when building a Unified Fabric with FCoE. But until now, it’s been difficult to quantify the savings without going through a detailed design exercise.Here is an online calculator that makes this process a much simpler one. I encourage you to test it out with your data and see if you come to the same conclusion that we have: a converged data center fabric can save you money.
