While studying FibreChannel protocol recently, it struck me that all the design mechanics of both FIbre
Channel, FCoE and iSCSI protocols is to create an emulation of the 50 way SCSI ribbon cable from twenty years ago. How dumb is that ?
Thats why I wrote more about this in the first part of a series on articles on on building Converged Storage and Data Network Fabrics and how to get it done in this post at The Register.
I’m told it’s a good read.
