  • Fibre Channel Scaling Nov 6 2019 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Mark Rogov, Dell EMC; Brandon Hoff, Broadcom; J Metz, Cisco
    One of Fibre Channel’s greatest strengths is its ability to scale to thousands and thousands of nodes, while providing predictable performance. So, when we say that Fibre Channel has unmatched scalability, what does that actually mean? And how does it work?

    We often hear about “designed from the ground up,” but in this case it’s actually true. From each individual link, to the overall domain architecture, each step along the way is intended to be approached in a scalable fashion.

    In this webinar, we’ll be breaking down the pieces of the puzzle that help give Fibre Channel its robustness when you’re working at fabrics even greater than 10,000 nodes. We’ll be talking about:

    •What a deterministic storage network is
    •Fabric management principles
    •Negotiated credit transfers (buffer-to-buffer credits)
    •Network Engineering/Design Principles
    •Oversubscription and Fan-In Ratios
    •Topologies that help scale
    •Domains and Fabric limits
    •Consistency of performance at scale

    Along the way, we’ll be talking about some of the ways that Fibre Channel differs from other popular storage networks as they approach large-scale environments, and how it handles issues that arise in such cases.

    Please join us on November 6th at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET for another educational webinar on Fibre Channel!

  • Fibre Channel and Security Recorded: Aug 27 2019 60 mins
    Nishant Lodha, Marvell; Brandon Hoff, Broadcom; J Metz, Cisco
    Fibre Channel has long been known to be a very secure protocol for storage. Even so, there is no such thing as a “perfectly secure” technology, and for that reason it’s important to constantly update and protect against threats.

    The sheer variety of environments in which Fibre Channel fabrics are deployed makes it very difficult to simply rely only on physical security. In fact, it’s possible to access different storage systems by different users, even when spanned over several sites. Fibre Channel enables security services to specifically address these concerns, and prevent misconfigurations or access to data by non-authorized people and machines.

    This webcast is going to dive deep into the guts of security aspects of Fibre Channel, looking closely at the protocols used to implement security in a Fibre Channel fabric. In particular, we’re going to look at:

    •The definitions of the protocols to authenticate Fibre Channel devices
    •What are the different classes of threats, and what are the mechanisms to protect against them
    •What are session keys and how to set them up
    •How Fibre Channel negotiates these parameters to insure frame-by-frame integrity and confidentiality
    •How Fibre Channel establishes and distributes policies across a fabric

    Please join us to learn more about the technical considerations that Fibre Channel brings to the table to secure and protect your data and information.
