  • FabricPath combines benefits of Layer 3 routing (ECMP multipathing) with simplicity of Layer 2 switching

    Cisco FabricPath helps enable highly scalable Layer 2 multipath networks without Spanning Tree Protocol. that basically eliminates the ancient and universally deployed spanning tree protocol from network designs, thus enabling much larger Layer 2 networking domains.

    2. 2. Cisco Confidential 2© 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Why Dynamic FCoE using FabricPath Why FCoE?  Elimination of separate network infrastructures for SAN and LAN traffic.  Reduction in hardware requirements, such as cabling and server adapters, and lowering cost  Increasing deployment agility for multi-protocol networks thus preserving long-term investments  End-to-end single converged Unified Fabric
    3. 3. Cisco Confidential 3© 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Why Dynamic FCoE using FabricPath Why FabricPath?  Reduction / elimination of Spanning Tree Protocol (STP)  Better stability and convergence Characteristics  Simplified configuration  More efficiently load-balance multi-protocol traffic within the data center  Improves high availability percentages as scale increases  “VLAN anywhere” – flexibility, L2 adjacency, and VM mobility
