SAN Virtuosity Series: Network Convergence & Fibre Channel over Ethernet

1,306 views

Published on

This webcast is the fourth in the SAN Virtuosity series from Cisco, VMware, and Emulex and will explore the opportunity to save money by converging your SAN and LAN traffic with FCoE. This webcast introduces network convergence and FCoE, and provides an overview on how to plan for a successful deployment. It will highlight how key products and technologies from Emulex, Cisco and VMware answer the critical questions that must be resolved so that deployments can go forward with a high level of confidence.

  • Network Convergence Lowers Costs by reducingTotal HW Costs by 28%Total Power & Cooling by 42%Total Cables Cost by 80%Ethernet Economies of Scale are hitting 10GbE Target price/port as a LOMTarget price/NIC portTarget price/Switch portCNAs will provide a pay-as-as you-go modelInitial costs will be the same as 10GbE NICsiSCSI can be added on demandFCoE can be added on demand
  • This gets even better as LOM evolves to a converged LOM
  • From a power perspective, we consolidate NIC, iSCSI and FC with a single chip
  • There are different ways to implement FCoE. You can start from the servers and move back to the storage, or you can move from the storage and approach the servers. FCoE is a flexible “bolt-on” technology that means you can non-disruptively add equipment to the existing Data CenterIn our example, our data center is not drawn to scale. 
  • Today customers are paying the price for separate IP and FC networks.

  • FCoE can be a “bolt-on” technology, which means that you don’t have to rip and replace.However, if you wish to upgrade your current environment, virtualization can help. By using virtualization methods such as vMotion, you can maintain server connections across
  • The core is designed to be stable, reliable, and fully saturated. When you have two separate networks – Fibre Channel and Ethernet, for instance – with different hardware, different ports that can only be used for one or the other, you have an issue when it comes to increasing capacity. Let’s say you have a saturated fibre channel pipe, but your ethernet is only being used at half capacity? Traditionally, you cannot simply ‘borrow’ your Ethernet traffic to give to your FC needs. With FCoE, however, you can!
  • Simplify next layer of cabling, reducing total number of cables and ports consumed. The splitting of storage traffic and LAN traffic now takes place at the Aggregation layer, typically a Nexus 7000 in a medium to large data center.
