NetApp Ethernet storage - Protocol independent convergence with FCoE

Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) is an emerging standard that maps Fibre Channel storage traffic over an Enhanced 10 Gigabit Ethernet network. NetApp is the first storage vendor to support native end-to-end FCoE protocol in its storage systems. This report explores documents the value of independent data mobility from FC to FCoE, demonstrates protocol independent access and storage services from a single NetApp Data ONTAP 7G platform, and verifies that the protocol independence of NetApp FAS and V-Series systems makes it easy to migrate from FC to FCoE technology. To read the report, go to NetApp Ethernet storage - Protocol independent convergence with FCoE.
