How to Use the Fibre Channel Speedmap

Presented by

Dave Alexander, Tony Bourke

About this talk

Fibre Channel is the most well known dedicated storage networking protocol in use in data centers today, and is considered the gold standard for storage in terms of availability, reliability, and scalability. However, it does require some specific design and planning requirements. For that, storage administrators use the Fibre Channel Speedmap in order to plan. In this webcast, you will learn how to use the Fibre Channel Speedmap, what the numbers mean, and why its useful: - Why do storage administrators use the Speedmap? - What’s the difference between throughput, bandwidth, baud rates, and speed? - Why does this matter for Fibre Channel and not, say, Ethernet? This live webcast will be useful for anyone who wants to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to “speeds and feeds,” and make sense of the numbers.
