Integrated iSCSI and FC SANs - SD CHI 08
iSCSI SANs are attractive because of their relatively low cost and familiar IP architecture, but adding an iSCSI array to an FC shop's storage infrastructure could spawn islands of arrays. Thus, to reap the real benefits of iSCSI storage, it's often necessary to integrate those systems into the FC fabric.
This session will focus on the products and practices necessary to integrate iSCSI into existing FC SAN deployments.
Some of the topics that will be covered include:
- Key roadblocks to integration in enterprise environments
- Integration protocols: FCIP, iFCP and FCoE - how does these protocols accommodate integration, how do they work and why should you choose on over the other
- The latest developments of the Ethernet protocol, and what's on the roadmap
