Fibre Channel Over 10 GbE

An Illustrated Guide to Making the Move to 10 Gigabit Ethernet
Fibre Channel Over 10 GbE

In the enterprise storage market, Fibre Channel continues to be a dominant protocol for storage area networks (SANs). However, because Fibre Channel is essentially a software-based transport vehicle for SCSI commands, it can operate across a variety of cable types. This includes 10 GbE, which is an exceptional option thanks to its relatively long transmit distances, high bandwidth capacity, and low cost. In this way, 10 GbE may play a major role for companies looking to expand their SAN infrastructure. (image source)
