FCoE Direct End-Node to End-Node (aka FCoE VN2VN) - Webinar By EITAGlobal Shared by JamesRichard

FCoE Direct End-Node to End-Node (aka FCoE VN2VN) - Webinar By EITAGlobal
Overview: This presentation provides an overview of a new Standard (to be released in 2014) called (herein) FCoE Direct End-Node to End-Node (aka FCoE VN2VN). This is a Lossless Ethernet connection directly between Adapters. One should think about FCoE VN2VN as placing the FCoE (FC) protocol on a Lossless Ethernet without the additional requirement of FC Switches or FCoE Switches known as FC Forwarders (FCFs). This permits connections via only (Lossless) Ethernet Switches, and it also permits connections via a single wire Point-to-Point. 

T11 previously standardized the FCoE specification (which defines the encapsulation of Fibre Channel frames within Ethernet Frames) and this new standard extends that specification further to permit FCoE connections DIRECTLY between FCoE End-Nodes (perhaps with intervening Ethernet Switches). This tutorial will show the fundamentals of the extended FCoE concept that permits it to operate without FC switches or FCoE Switches (aka FCFs) and will describe how it might be exploited in a Data Center environment 

This presentation will show the relationship of FCoE to FCoE VN2VN, it will explain the architecture of FCoE VN2VN, and the protocol for Discovery of partner End-Nodes and Link instantiation. Various topologies will by shown and scenarios described. 

Why should you attend: The tutorial will show the Fundamentals of the extended FCoE concept that permits it to operate without FC switches or FCoE Switches (aka FCF) and will describe how it might be exploited in Small, Medium or Enterprise Data Center environments -- including the "Cloud" IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) provider environments. 

Fibre Channel (FC) networks have been the networks of choice for addressing Storage within the Enterprise Computing Center environment since 2000. Then in 2009 The Fibre Channel protocol was also standardized to operate on a new Lossless Data Center Ethernet Network. This was called FC over Ethernet (FCoE). Both the FC and FCoE technologies are intended for the High End of the Data Center Market, But now a new standard (to be release in 2014) will also cover the small and medium size markets so that access to Shared Storage Controllers can be accomplished from the small to high end of the market. That is, one Storage Protocols will be used for all non-attached storage throughout the industry. This tutorial will keep you up to date in the new low cost protocol that is compatible with high end Fibre Channel and is currently shipping by several vendors.

Speaker Profile:
John Hufferd is currently a Consultant for his own company – Hufferd Enterprises. Prior to this he was the Senior Executive Director of Technology at Brocade Communications, John Hufferd was responsible for defining Brocade’s technology direction and strategy of storage networks including iSCSI based, FC based, FCoE based, and NAS (CIFS, CIFS) networks. John has over 40 years in the storage and networking industries; and prior to joining Brocade, John was retired from the IBM Corporation, where he was focused on Storage Networking Strategies. He also holds over Eighteen Issued Patents in the area of Storage Layouts, Storage Protocols, RDMA, Communications, etc. 

John began work on iSCSI (internet Small Computer System Interconnect) in its very early years (1998) and has been a key mover in getting it accepted as an international standard. John is well known in the industry due to positions held within the various industry organizations, including SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) and RDMAC (Remote Direct Memory Access Consortium). He has held positions on the board of advisors for 7 different companies and has authored the definitive book on iSCSI called "iSCSI -- The Universal Storage Connection", published by Addison-Wesley. John has been a key contributor in the INCITS (International Committee for Information Technology Standards) Fibre Channel Standards Group – T11 FC-BB-5/6 Workgroup which is focused on FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet).
