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 …
