Back in January I wrote a blog about emerging Ethernet standards that are converging Ethernet, Fibre Channel and virtualization. During one of HP’s recent tech days they had a session on all of these new standards, their ratification status, and how they will apply to HP products. Even if you aren’t a HP customer, these short videos are worth watching. HP FCoE is on the way!
You can check all of them out here. The bottom line for HP customers is that sometime in 2010 HP will release blade servers with built-in converged adaptors that will support 10Gb Ethernet, Fibre Channel over Ethernet, and a iSCSI initiator. They will also need to come out with a new interconnect module that supports these new adaptors.
