RE: FW: Recent comments about FCoE and iSCSI



How would an FCoE-based initiator communicate with iSCSI-based storage? 

In other words, can the same host adapter be used for FCoE connections
and iSCSI sessions, and if so, would the performance be similar?

thanks,
dj

	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
