"Free Fibre Channel” - Implementing Fibre Channel SANs Using Standard NICs and FCoE
This webinar explores the use of 10Gb Ethernet as a universal fabric for all communications storage, networking, and interprocess communications.More
Fibre Channel is the gold standard for high end SANs. It is mature, proven, widely deployed, has a large ecosystem of tools and support -- and is expensive. Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) uses 10Gb Ethernet to carry Fibre Channel traffic. It is fully compatible with standard Fibre Channel, integrates into a standard Fibre Channel environment, and offers simplified deployment. FCoE has typically been implemented using specialized hardware CNAs (Converged Network Adapters), which provide a Fibre Channel controller and an Ethernet NIC on a single card connected to a single Ethernet port.
Red Hat and Intel have worked together to provide a full FCoE implementation using RHEL 6 and standard Intel 10Gb Ethernet NICs. This allows deployment of a fully compliant, certified, high performance, low cost Fibre Channel solution.
In this webinar, we will address how FCoE is implemented, and covers other storage protocols such as iscsi and file services. After attending this Webinar you will have the knowledge to determine whether or not FCoE is a technology you should explore further for your specific needs.Less
