This is the second in a series of posts designed to address some of the questions I’ve posed with respect to FCoE vs. iSCSI, in an attempt to take a detached view towards the pros and cons of each technology as it relates to measuring up in the data center.

Why FCoE Is a Good Thing…
— This is a tongue in cheek video that I took in one of my labs showing why, for no other reason but fabric reduction, that CEE/DCE/FCoE is a valuable thing for ANY IT infrastructure. A couple of things you’ll notice here are:
