This session explores the opportunities and challenges of using a single network to support both storage and networking. The Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI (SCSI over TCP/IP) protocols offer two approaches for supporting storage over Ethernet. Standards, technologies and deployment scenarios for both protocols will be covered, along with the future of storage networking technology.
Objective 1: Describe FCoE and iSCSI and how they fit into existing storage and networking infrastructure.
After this session you will be able to:
Objective 2: Explain how FCoE and iSCSI solutions provide storage networking options for Ethernet, including 10Gb Ethernet.
Objective 3: Describe some of the opportunities and challenges of converging storage and networking environments.
