It's a long-standing goal in enterprise networking to cost-effectively converge all local and storage area network (LAN and SAN) traffic on a single powerful infrastructure via one flexible, reliable, high-performance and low-latency protocol. And the future data center will, indeed, one day rely on some form of converged fabric with server and storage virtualization. Only two of today's technologies stand to keep pace with Moore's Law and potentially serve as that sought-after unifying fabric: InfiniBand and Ethernet. This makes emergent Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) an especially promising interconnect candidate. Proponents of the protocol feel FCoE one day could shoulder all LAN and SAN traffic on the same, commonly managed, low-cost infrastructure - while delivering performance as fast, reliable and low latency as offered via highly sophisticated protocols s...
