[April 30, 2010] EMC's Global Marketing CTO sees solid state drives, the cloud and Ethernet as the future of storage networking.
The State of IP Storage
The latest in this important new storage technology.
[March 26, 2010] Data center networking convergence is coming; what will it mean for existing Ethernet storage protocols?
[December 17, 2009] One early FCoE adopter alleviated a power crunch by moving to converged storage and data networks.
[November 16, 2009] Not only might NAS replace SAN in the coming world of Ethernet-based storage, but the distinctions between the two might also disappear.
[October 30, 2009] As part of Open-FCoE, Intel is leading an effort to make FCoE native to Linux and is literally giving away its code to accomplish that.
[October 26, 2009] Much has changed since storage networks first appeared — and the biggest changes may be yet to come.
[September 28, 2009] It's possible to get started on Fibre Channel over Ethernet now, but most experts advise to move cautiously.
[August 14, 2009] Cisco is no longer pursuing InfiniBand, but other vendors and analysts see continued growth and opportunities in the IB market.
[June 18, 2009] Recent steep drops in the price of 10Gb Ethernet NICs mean that Fibre Channel's decade-long dominance will soon be over.
[March 17, 2009] EMC, NetApp and VMware stand to benefit from Cisco's new Unified Computing System, while Brocade could find itself in an interesting position.
[December 10, 2008] Cloud computing may be ill-defined and over-hyped, but for storage users, it could represent a new way of looking at storage.
[December 4, 2008] A California medical facility has improved its regulatory compliance and e-discovery efforts with help from iSCSI and data encryption.
[September 12, 2008] The storage networking world could be profoundly changed by three emerging technologies.
[July 19, 2007] When it came time to boost performance and capacity, Adecco abandoned its Fibre Channel SAN for a 120TB LeftHand iSCSI SAN.
[June 21, 2007] Why iSCSI never overtook Fibre Channel — and why it never will.
[March 22, 2007] IP storage technology is catching on thanks in part to server virtualization.
[June 15, 2006] With PCI Express boosting network performance, the TCP/IP stack may be due for an overhaul next.
[October 5, 2005] Big things have been predicted for iSCSI for years, but there is some evidence that the IP storage technology's time may have finally arrived.
[July 29, 2005] The recent merger of two key open source iSCSI initiator projects could be the spark that ignites Linux iSCSI.
[October 13, 2004] When will the promise of iSCSI turn into an enterprise reality? Cisco, EMC, IBM and Microsoft weigh in on where the IP-based storage network technology has been, where it is now, and where it's headed.
[September 30, 2003] While some industry experts believe IP-based SANs will have an eye-opening effect on the storage industry, others feel that it will be nothing more than 'business as usual.' Leslie Wood concludes an in-depth look at where IP SANs stand today and once again tackles the burning question of whether or not Fibre Channel SANs and IP SANs will play nice together.
