Fibre Channel is an ideal solution for IT professionals who need reliable, cost-effective information storage and delivery at fast speeds. With development starting in 1988 and ANSI standard approval in 1994, Fibre Channel is a mature, safe solution for 1Gb, 2Gb, 4Gb, 8Gb and 16Gb communications, providing an ideal solution for fast, reliable mission-critical information storage and retrieval for today’s data centers. Another new Fibre Channel interface development is Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), which leverages the millions of man-hours of Fibre Channel upper layer management and driver development and its extensive installed base, now shipping at 10GFCoE and coming soon industry-wide at 40GFCoE and 100GFCoE.
