    It will take time for super-fast data centre Ethernet technologies to evolve, so managers of data centre networks must optimise existing Ethernet through a series of strategies that range from choosing very large switches to isolating storage network... 

About Storage and Data Centre Networks

Read the latest about data centre network and storage network design. Here you can learn about design considerations for data centre infrastructure, including 10 Gigabit Ethernet. You'll also find resources on new methods of converging data centre networks and storage networks with Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and new protocols, such as data centre bridging (DCB) and TRILL. Also learn about improving iSCSI performance, running Infiniband in an Ethernet environment, and using converged and virtualised I/O for traffic convergence in UK storage networks.
