We rely on technical standards for all facets of daily life. It has become really easy to take technology standards for granted, forgetting that they underpin the technology used in everyday activities. However, when things go wonky, it becomes glaringly apparent that there is a desperate need for things to work together, seamlessly. In this blog series, Barry Maskas of Hewlett Packard Enterprise pulls back the curtains on what makes something a standard, as opposed to just an agreement or a specification. He also looks at how T11 – the organization that creates the Fibre Channel standard – works its magic. Along the way, he casts light on some of the acronyms that may seem arcane, which should help you understand how better to use them when planning or architecting Fibre Channel solutions.
