    1. 1. Dynamic FCoE You Can Do That?! Using FCoE to Expand Storage Flexibility in the New Ethernet Cloud Topologies Co-sponsored by Intel®
    2. 2. 2© 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Traditional Data Centers Evolution of Convergence  Network separation at the host  Separate Ethernet-based networks and Fibre Channel-based networks  Multiple cards per server  2 HBAs  Average of 6 (or more!) NICs per server  High underutilization drives up unnecessary power, cooling, and asset costs * not to scale
    3. 3. 3© 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Access-Layer Convergence Evolution of Convergence  Consolidate I/O on 10G links  Drastically reduced CapEx and OpEx  Multiprotocol connectivity eased purchasing decisions for server refreshes  Prepared Data Centers for VM mobility requirements  Any VM could connect to FC storage if necessary, not just the ones with HBAs pre-installed * not to scale
    4. 4. 4© 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Case Study Boeing Aerospace and Defense  Reduced deployment times for each server by 25%  Saved 35% in Cap-ex and cut 90% of Power costs  “…utilizing the cores better, and increasing I/O with fewer cables and switches”  “…use our existing personnel to manage both IP and FCoE resources quickly and efficiently, increasing their value within the company CORE SAN BSAN A FCoE FCoE Ethernet Fibre Channel Dedicated FCoE Converged Link Multi-Hop FCoE End-to-End FCoE http://www.cisco.com/en/US/solutions/collateral /ns340/ns517ns224//boeing.pdf
    5. 5. 5Cisco Confidential© 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Is That All? What’s next!? Changes in hardware and software are affecting future topologies • How to address new topologies? • What about multiprotocol storage? • Can we get true consolidated I/O throughout the fabric?

    8. 8. 8© 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Evolution of Convergence  Use IEEE ETS to guarantee bandwidth for traffic types  Use IEEE PFC to create lossless traffic for FCoE  Use advanced Ethernet fabric forwarding for ECMP traffic flows  Use Ethernet infrastructure for all kinds of storage (including connections to traditional FC storage environment0s  Increase IT agility and operational and resource efficiency while speeding delivery of services to application owners  Improve scalability for all application needs and maintain high, consistent performance for all traffic types, not just storage

    11. 11. 11© 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Rethinking Storage Networking  Typical Fibre Channel topology:  Edge/Core/Edge not uncommon  Dual SANs for Redundancy  If path breaks or core switch goes down, SAN fails over to SAN B SAN A SAN B X

Rethinking Storage Networking  Typical Fibre Channel topology:  Edge/Core/Edge not uncommon  Dual SANs for Redundancy  If path breaks or core switch goes down, SAN fails over to SAN B  Meaning, if a core switch goes down, the entire SAN side goes down SAN A SAN B X
