EMC technologist discusses FIbreChannel over Ethernet (FCoE)

December 18, 2008 - 1 Comment

Stuart Miniman from EMC leads a whiteboard ‘chalk-talk’ on FibreChannel over Ethernet. An important part of Cisco’s Data Center 3.0 initiative FCoE is continuing to be embraced by an ever larger vendor and now customer community. With over 250 customers having adopted the Nexus family of Data Center class switches we are well on our way to a unified fabric- one where everything goes over one network; but also where every host is capable of accessing all storage resources, without disrupting today’s effective ITIL processes and defined workflows.

  1. Good video – introduces the concept of FCoE well and the benefits of reducing the need for too much extra hardware by utilising Ethernet and existing servers – rather than replacing them! The need only for the FCoE switch and the CNA seems appealing. It will be interesting to see how FCoE and the EMC products evolve.
