This latest update to the Fibre Channel Consultant series continues the tradition of providing comprehensive information on Fibre Channel technology. Newly updated with a major revision for 2007 to include virtual fabrics, inter-fabric routing and other changes to the standards, this valuable resource provides thorough and up-to-the minute discussions of Fibre Channel switched fabric topology. Fibre Channel Switched Fabric is the first reference text other than the standards. It's an in-depth examination of the Fibre Channel fabric including concepts, addressing, initialization, principal switch selection, routing concepts and protocols, path selection, and switching constructs. In addition, this book explores the rich set of functions found in switched fabric environments including the Name Server, Management Server, Alias Server, and the commands and protocol used to access the services. Most important, Fibre Channel Switched Fabric provides understandable explanations and practical guidelines for working with complex technology. As with its predecessors in the Fibre Channel Consultant series, this book will quickly become your gotta-have resource.

Fibre Channel Over Ethernet FCoE

Fibre Channel Over Ethernet  FCoE

It is not the intent of this book to cover those technologies in depth. The companion books in the Fibre Channel Consultant series already provide a thorough discussion of the Fibre Channel technologies and protocols.

Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) burst upon the data center storage scene in April of 2007 with a joint press release issued by ten of the leading companies in the storage industry. Since that initial press release, FCoE has generated an extraordinary amount of discussion and controversy within the industry. The purpose of this book is to examine the FCoE technology and provide an understanding of the reasons behind its development and ultimate applications. Just as Fibre Channel rode the way of Storage Area Networking and brought an entirely new paradigm to storage attachment, FCoE is riding the wave of the converged data center Ethernet. The realization of a converged data center network will fundamentally change the storage landscape and open the storage market to new ideas, architectures and products. Because FCoE is based on both Fibre Channel and Ethernet, an understanding of both of these technologies is required to fully understand FCoE. It is not the intent of this book to cover those technologies in depth. The companion books in the Fibre Channel Consultant series already provide a thorough discussion of the Fibre Channel technologies and protocols. Similarly, there are many excellent books that already cover Ethernet. This book targets the marriage of those two technologies and explains how FCoE leverages the advantages of both technologies as the storage component of a converged data center Ethernet. Using more than 160 figures and 25 tables to illustrate the essential concepts and operation of FCoE, this book proceeds step-by-step from basic concepts through detailed examination of all FCoE protocols. Unlike other texts, including the standards themselves, Fibre Channel over Ethernet expands on key factors such as configurations, deployment scenarios and the benefits of FCoE. It's the ultimate resource for anyone involved in this dynamic technology.

"Storage Networks Explained has much to recommend it.... a rarity in the literature of digital data storage – a complete exposition of both the base subject matter and its applications, which at the same time offers a level of readability making it suitable as an introduction to the subject. Storage Networks Explained is also flexible. It can be read cover-to-cover, browsed, or used as a reference. I recommend Storage Networks Explained as an essential component of any active information technology library." —Paul Massiglia, Technical Director, VERITAS Software Corporation Storage networks will become a basic technology like databases or local area networks. According to market research, 70% of external storage devices will be connected via storage networks in 2003. The authors have hands-on experience of network storage hardware and software, they teach customers about concrete network storage products, they understand the concepts behind storage networks, and show customers how storage networks address their business needs. Storage networks provide shared access to stored data from multiple computers and servers, thus increasing storage efficiency and availability. They permit information management functions such as backup and recovery, data mirroring, disaster recovery, and data migration to be performed quickly and efficiently, with a minimum of system overhead. This book explains how to use storage networks to fix malfunctioning business processes, covering the technologies as well as applications. A hot topic that will become increasingly important in the coming years. One of the first books to focus on using rather than building storage networks, and how to solve problems. Looking beyond technology and showing the true benefits of storage networks. Covers fibre channel SAN, Network Attached Storage, iSCSI and InfiniBand technologies. Contains several case studies (e.g. the example of a travel portal, protecting a critical database) Endorsed by the Storage Networking Industry Association. Written by very experienced professionals who tailored the book specifically to meet customer needs including support with supplementry material on Troppens website and Preface written by Tony Clark. Provides basic application information key for systems administrators, database administrators and managers who need to know about the networking aspects of their systems. As well as systems architects, network managers, information management directors and decision makers. This book also supports applications for graduate students and other relevant courses in the field. Awarded Best System Administration Book 2005 by the Linux Journal

A logical extension of the well - known Ethernet technology, Gigabit Ethernet provides the capacity required for bandwidth - hungry servers, campus backbone networks, and next - generation workstations. The author explains the technology in clear and understandable terms, and explores the implications for its application and operation in real - world networks. You & ’ll find essential information on full duplex operation and its implications for network design, the automatic link configuration mechanism, modifications made to the Ethernet Medium Access Control (MAC) algorithms to support 1000 Mb/s operation, and the differences among Gigabit Ethernet hubs, including repeaters, switches, routers, and buffered distributors. Gigabit Ethernet contains a convenient summary of the IEEE 802.3z Gigabit Ethernet standard, and to give you a perspective on Gigabit Ethernet & ’s role relative to other high - performance LANs, Seifert compares Gigabit Ethernet to such alternative technologies as Fibre Channel, FDDI, HIPPI, and ATM.
