Fibre Channel is the most well known dedicated storage networking protocol in use in data centers today, and is considered the gold standard for storage in terms of availability, reliability, and scalability. However, it does require some specific design and planning requirements. For that, storage administrators use the Fibre Channel Speedmap in order to plan.
On April 6, 2017, members from the Fibre Channel Industry Association will explain how to make the most of the Fibre Channel Speedmap in a live webcast, “How to Use the Fibre Channel Speedmap.” In this webcast, you will learn:
- What the numbers mean, and why the Speedmap is so useful
- Why storage administrators use the Speedmap
- The difference between throughput, bandwidth, baud rates, and speed
- Why this matters for Fibre Channel and not, say, Ethernet?
This live webcast will be useful for anyone who wants to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to “speeds and feeds,” and make sense of the numbers. We hope to see you on April 6th.
