Enterprise Data Centers have their storage fabric built using Fibre Channel. FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) is a new technology which promises network consolidation on top of Ethernet. FCoE retains the management model of FC. FCoE provides I/O consolidation and removes the need for two different networks. Instead, the entire data center can be implemented using Ethernet. With so many advantages for FCoE, is migration simply a rip-and-replace process? Do all FC HBAs just be replaced with FCoE CNAs? Could the pre-standard DCE/FCoE switches result in a proprietary fabric? Is 8G FC a superior option compared to FCoE? This session will answer all these questions.
