Forrester Thought Leadership White Paper: Exploring the Potential Benefits of End-to-End Convergence of Data Center Networks
This whitepaper discloses the results of an evaluation of end-to-end storage area network/local area network (SAN/LAN) networking issues including Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) adoption.
Recent innovations in Ethernet networking have presented the possibility of network unification through the use of a single technology for both SAN and LAN. Protocols such as iSCSI and FCoE offer better performance, low latency, and constant data availability on Ethernet. However, many organizations are doubtful about the process, its challenges, and whether it will actually happen or not.
In this whitepaper, uncover the potential benefits of SAN/LAN convergence, the barriers preventing network convergence, organizational and technology considerations, and much more!
