The Grand Unification Storage Theory

I read with interest an article on The Register about a panel that happened at TECHunplugged (I wish I had known about this; I would have tried to attend in person if possible). The article was entitled “One Storage Protocol to Rule Them All” by Chris Evans, who is someone I like and respect a great deal in the industry.

The key clickbait for me, however, was the interesting tagline, “And why are Fibre Channel fans so, er, stubborn about movements?” Being heavily involved in both Fibre Channel and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (as I write this, I’m on the Board of Directors for the Fibre Channel Industry Association, though this is just my thoughts, not the FCIA’s), I was keen to see just how aligned his thoughts and mine might be.

However, I think there is a major shift in the curve’s shape that should be included. Sadly, that shape is a slight downturn before we hit the full upswing.

Brocade and Cisco agree on FCoE detail

January 4, 2010 1 comment

In the not-so-Wild West of FCoE standards negotiation, the two big switch juggernauts – Cisco and Brocade – agreed to a compromise that will affect the way that traffic moves across networks. The good news is that this was a major obstacle to making FCoE have a chance at becoming a valid contender for networking in the data center. So now we ask, “So what?” Read more…
