  • Ethernet Technology Summit Santa Clara, CA USA April 2013
  • As shown in this data from Crehan Research, 10 Gigabit Ethernet prices have dropped dramatically. That in turn will fuel rapid market growth over the next three years.

    5. 5. Convergence Value PropositionSanta Clara, CA USAApril 20135Single network for storage andnetworkingReduces number of adapters andswitches, and simplify cabling byconsolidating on Ethernet Save 30% on adapters and switches,80% on cablesReduces OPEX with both power andmanagement savings Save 40% on power and cooling Simplified deployment
    6. 6. Adoption TrendsSanta Clara, CA USAApril 201362011: Less than 33% of respondents to InfoProstorage study indicated increased spending in FCoE2012: 54% had converged platforms in use or planned to 52% were going to increase spending in 10GbE 44% planned to increase spending in CNAs
