So, my good friend Stu Miniman (@stu on Twitter) put out a video a few months back extolling the virtues of FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) for the next generation data center. This video, while fascinating, didn’t answer the underlying hardware questions that we all had: What the heck does all this stuff look like? created a Part 2 video showing off some of the FCoE hardware like the Cisco Nexus 5010 and Qlogic 81xx series CNAs. This video is definitely worth a look/listen.
Accompanying this video, Stu also prepped the following slide deck which goes over the hardware a little more specifically.
