Approach with FCoE between the IBM Flex Chassis and a top-of-rack switch
This chapter describes a Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) configuration that uses a top-of-rack switch as a Fibre Channel Forwarder (FCF). We tested the IBM System Networking GS8264CS switch as a top-of-rack FCF. This switch contains twelve Fibre Channel (FC) ports to be in place to provide the FCF function. The second possibility for the IBM System Networking GS8264CS switch is the use as an NPV device to connect one or more FC fabrics. Although our testing used nodes ...
