Fibre Channel over Ethernet: Investment Protection, Cost Savings, Simplicity

FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) provides the convergence of LAN and Fibre Channel storage traffic on a single lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet link. This enables the network to provide the flexibility to either run FCoE, Fibre Channel (FC), IP-based storage such as NAS & iSCSI or combination of these technologies on a single converged network referred to as Unified Fabric.

FCoE is the logical step for converging LAN and Storage networks and has no downside. FCoE provides the investment protection, cost savings & simplify the network. FCoE enables SAN users to take advantage of the economy of scale, robust vendor community and roadmap of Ethernet while providing high-performance loss less characteristic of a Fibre Channel storage network, essentially providing best of both worlds.
