Fibre Channel (FC) is the storage networking protocol for enterprise data centers with over 11 million ports deployed. Fibre Channel is purpose-built–and engineered to meet the demands for enterprise data centers that require rock solid reliability, high performance and scalability. It can even transport new storage protocols like NVMe natively. This webcast explains how FC provides unparalleled performance for storage systems.
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. Watch this on-demand webcast to learn how to use the Fibre Channel Speedmap, what the numbers mean, and why its useful.
NVMe is one of the most interesting new developments to happen to storage in the past several years, and NVMe over Fabrics extends these capabilities over a Storage Area Network. Given that 80% of all existing Flash storage solutions deployed are interconnected with Fibre Channel, many questions have arisen about what it is, how it works, and why someone might want to consider using Fibre Channel for NVMe-based solutions. Watch this on-demand webcast to learn more about this exciting new technology from the people who are developing it.
