About this talk

Fibre Channel (FC) is the storage networking protocol for enterprise data centers with over 142 million ports having been shipped. Fibre Channel is purpose built and engineered to meet the demands for enterprise data centers that require rock solid reliability, high performance, and scalability. In other words, Fibre Channel technology transports FC-SB-x, FCP, and FC-NVMe storage protocols natively. This webcast explains how Fibre Channel is architected for unparalleled performance for storage protocols. If you are interested in this architecture, please join us to learn more on the Fibre Channel: • Functional levels and components • Physical model • Communication models • Interconnect topologies • Classes of service • General Fabric model • Generic Services This all leads to a future webcast where we’ll dive into: • Building blocks and their hierarchy o Frames, Sequences, Exchanges, Protocols • Segmentation and reassembly • Error detection and recovery • Current enhancements e.g., Congestion Notifications After you watch the presentation, check out the Q&A blog: https://bit.ly/3JOgdTU
