ALSO CALLED: Fiber Channel SAN, Fibre, Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks, Fiber Channel Storage Area Networks, Fibre Channel Storage
DEFINITION: FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) is a standard for enabling Fibre Channel communications to run directly over high speed Ethernet networks by using an optional transport mechanism instead of TCP/IP. The goal of the standard is to allow a data center administrator to run a converged network infrastructure, as opposed to maintaining an Ethernet network for data and voice over IP (VoIP) communication  …

FIBRE CHANNEL SAN DEFINITION (continued): …  and a Fibre Channel (FC) network for storage. FCoE works with standard Ethernet cards, cables, and switches to handle Fibre Channel traffic at the link layer, using Ethernet frames to encapsulate, route and transport Fibre Channel frames. It is designed to maintain backward compatibility with existing Fibre Channel endpoint infrastructure, allowing an organization to protect and extend existing investments in a storage area network (SAN). FCoE was published in May 2010 as ANSI/INCITS 462-2010. It is often compared with iSCSI, an Internet Protocol (IP)-based storage networking standard …
