For some time, organizations have had two separate but parallel networks in their data center: an Ethernet-based local area network (LAN) to connect servers to clients and the internet, and a Fibre Channel (FC)-based network to connect servers to the storage area network (SAN). While this worked sufficiently before, it is no longer adequate to meet the growing business requirements and the resource demands of virtualized environments.

Access this whitepaper to learn about a cost-effective solution that unifies LANs and SANs, eliminating redundant switches, reducing cabling and network interface card (NIC) counts, and is overall more cost-effective than the previous alternative. Having a unified network infrastructure using Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) through a dual port 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) server adapter helps reduce total network costs, provides higher performance, controls traffic, and much more.
