One of Fibre Channel’s greatest strengths is its ability to scale to thousands and thousands of nodes, while providing predictable performance. So, when we say that Fibre Channel has unmatched scalability, what does that actually mean? And how does it work? Find out on November 6, 2019 when the FCIA will present Fibre Channel Scaling.
We often hear about “designed from the ground up,” but in this case it’s actually true. From each individual link, to the overall domain architecture, each step along the way is intended to be approached in a scalable fashion.
In this webinar, we’ll be breaking down the pieces of the puzzle that help give Fibre Channel its robustness when you’re working at fabrics even greater than 10,000 nodes. We’ll be talking about:
- What a deterministic storage network is
- Fabric management principles
- Negotiated credit transfers (buffer-to-buffer credits)
- Network Engineering/Design Principles
- Oversubscription and Fan-In Ratios
- Topologies that help scale
- Domains and Fabric limits
- Consistency of performance at scale
Along the way, we’ll be talking about some of the ways that Fibre Channel differs from other popular storage networks as they approach large-scale environments, and how it handles issues that arise in such cases.
Register today to join us on November 6th at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET for another educational webinar on Fibre Channel!
