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.
Flexible and resilient, Fibre Channel provides unparalleled performance for storage systems. Not only can it be deployed in a “native” format, but frames can also be encapsulated in both Ethernet IP packets (FCIP) as well as a Layer 2 frames (FCoE).
Even so, many people don’t actually understand how it works. If you’re in that camp, our next live FCIA webcast is for you! Join us on June 15th for “Fibre Channel Fundamentals.” This webcast will help you understand the basics so that you can make informed decisions yourself.
In this “101” lesson on fibre channel, we’ll answer key questions, such as:
- What is Fibre Channel?
- What makes Fibre Channel so reliable?
- How is Fibre Channel different from other storage protocols?
- What are the best practices for designing Fibre Channel solutions?
- And more
If you’re not familiar with Fibre Channel and want to learn more, or if you are interested in learning about how Fibre Channel is purpose-built for storage and future-proofed for next-generation NVMe storage arrays, register today. Our experts will be available to answer your specific questions on the spot. We hope to see you on June 15th.
