Ken,

The term FCoE has as its primary component FC.  Consider the possibility
that the DCE Link from the Host connects to a switch/device that is able
to deal with the FC part of the FCoE.

Hey John,

 

[Hufferd] Many servers are asking for an evolutionary way to combine
their Networking connections from the Server.  The customers I have
dealt with do NOT want to rip out FC, they want to provide a single Link
for transport of all networking needs, including storage, exiting their
servers.


I'm not sure what you are saying here. Are you saying servers should
have a single type of physical network connection, presumably ethernet?
How does that align with not wanting to rip out FC?

 

Thanks

Ken
