What Storage and Network Convergence Really Means
Many network equipment providers are advocating converged networks that bridge storage, data center servers and networking into one fabric with combined protocols. But is it really necessary to implement convergence throughout the network? This issue will investigate how users are addressing convergence in the field, and what their outlook is for the future. Are they really revamping entire architectures and investing in convergence-ready network components? Or is there a middle ground where patching storage and networking protocols together with adapters or NICs is enough? This issue of the Network Evolution E-Zine will help you answer these questions and provides guidance on managing the converged infrastructure.
