Data Center Modernization for Fibre Channel SAN

316 vues

Publié le

While we do not naturally associate Fibre Channel SAN as a “modern” environment, there have been significant recent developments that greatly improve its performance, availability, reach, and management for storage. This is particularly true of network connectivity options, specifically the Gen 6 Fibre Channel protocol. This session will cover the Brocade family of high-performance, energy-efficient, highly scalable Fibre Channel SAN products available for connection to Fujitsu storage environments. We will also discuss advanced fabric capabilities such as distance extension and network analytics, and offer a glimpse into promising new technologies such as NVMe over Fibre Channel.

In particular it is essential to ensure that the network can support the additional performance enabled by generation two flash storage technologies.
