Platinum Ballroom Salon 2 (Anaheim Marriott Hotel)
Speaker: Stephen R. Guendert Sr., Ph., D(Brocade Communications Systems)
  • System z Long Distance Extension and FCIPNetwork Primer (2.8 MB)
  • This session will provide a detailed look at Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) networking for IBM System z environments. We will discuss basics, such as tunnels, circuits, and the protocol itself. We will also cover several more advanced technical subjects, such as FCIP trunking, metrics/failover, lossless link loss, and how TCP plays a role in FCIP networks. Finally, we will discuss different FICON protocol emulation techniques used to improve performance over very long distances.

    Tracks: Network Systems, Performance/Capacity Planning and Storage
