RE: Recent comments about FCoE and iSCSI


A technical discussion is a technical discussion. It is for this community to decide if it want to discuss it or not.
As for moving it - it is again for tis team to decide. I would point out that having an Ethernet application layer being discussed in T11 is a first and although T11s charter  is "interfaces" it has in the past done FCp (a protocol).. FC however is the "product" of an industry consortium. T11 will have to "stretch" the one of it's project subgroups (recharter) or create a new one. I assume that with the economic might of your supporters you may do that. Convincing the technical community that this is the right thing to do is a different story.

FCoE is not asking you (the ips WG) anything.

FCoE is a proposed item for the FC-BB-5 WG of T11. If you have concern
that T11 is making a mistake, I suggest you move this discussion to the
T11.3 reflector.

The FC-BB WG will meet the first time to discuss FCoE in Bloomington, MN
Wednesday June 6th, 2007.

IMHO, it is a bit premature to discuss the limitations of a technology
that is not yet public or defined.
