FCoE and VMotion – the Perfect Relationship

August 14, 2008 - 1 Comment

Just read the following article published by Mario Apicella from Infoworld. Mario’s article espouses the value of FCoE in providing storage connectivity ubiquitously to a host. When coupled with an application such as VMotion that demands perfect state synchronization not having to move a huge runtime image speeds the move. Having all of the servers connected to a common infrastructures overcomes the addressing and segmented connectivity challenges imposed by a SAN island architecture.Mario- appreciate your testing, and validation that what we have here is a technology that is not only easy to use and real, but is also adding value to virtualization and VMotion.dg
