Demartek to Present FCoE technologies at the Ethernet Technology Summit in February 2011

1 December 2010

, President of Demartek, will present two tutorials at the Ethernet Technology Summit in Santa Clara, California on February 24, 2011. These sessions are:

Unified Storage Networking

The leading switch vendors have revealed their visions of a unified data center network infrastructure (converged networking), and the adapter vendors are providing new adapters. It sounds good, but what are the ramifications for the storage networking infrastructures you have in place. This session will cover existing technologies that are available now and what is still needed, the key protocols and standards such as Data Center Bridging (DCB), also known as Enhanced Ethernet, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) that will make the unified data center work, the advantages and disadvantages of having an integrated network, and how currently installed storage networks will be affected.

In addition, Dennis will include some of the results from his unified network testing with Enhanced Ethernet and FCoE in the Demartek lab.

Learning objectives include:

Bringing Storage into the Ethernet Era

Dennis will be moderating this discussion on Fibre Channel over Ethernet with other industry participants. For more information, please visit Dennis will give a 15-minute overview of DCB and FCoE, followed by asking the panelists a series of questions. The panelists represent the entire FCoE ecosystem. Afterwards, we will encourage questions from the audience.
