  • Many customers need to send FICON traffic between two datacenter sites - or between their datacenter and their tape archive. In the past this meant dedicated Sonet circuits but today Ficon over IP allows customers to send this storage data over IP networks that are much more cost effective. This IP network can be a dedicated circuit or even be a virtual tunnel within collapsed corporate networks. First in this session we will discuss the technology to do this and how it insures the RAS required for storage and then in the second half of the session, we will discuss a customer network where this was implemented and is running in production today.

    Tracks: Enterprise Data Center Management, IT Management, Network Support and Management and Storage Administration
