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