About this talk

Each SAN transport has its own way to initialize and transfer data. So how do initiators (hosts) and targets (storage arrays) communicate in Fibre Channel (FC) Storage Area Networks (SANs)? Find out in this live webcast where Fibre Channel experts will answer: • How do FC links activate? • Is FC routable? • What kind of flow control is present in FC? • How do initiators find targets and set up their communication? • Finally, how does actual data get transferred since that is the ultimate goal? This session will introduce these concepts to demystify the FC SAN for the network professional. After you watch the webcast, check out the Q&A blog at https://bit.ly/3Gh43RU
