I told you we’d be back with an update on #dellsf11, Dell Storage Forum 2011. Emulex’ new tagline is Emulex Connects Servers, Storage and People. Well let me tell you — #dellsf11 was all about making connections. We came, we talked, we rocked! #Emulex sported a Petabyte sponsorship entitling us to a lot of visibility & all the right connections with Dell end user customers and channel partners. Glen Sheets, said “wow – Emulex is Everywhere” (I love that!) We chatted with over 300 guests and Joe Gervais hosted a training session Enabling Converged Networks with iSCSI over DCB –he did an awesome job!
Joe’s session covered how iSCSI over DCB enables convergence of LAN and iSCSI traffic onto a common network. He reviewed iSCSI over DCB, including the performance and ease of use aspects and how iSCSI over DCB overcomes inhibitors to convergence. Attendees were introduced to related technologies that can help manage the 1G to 10G transition, including multichannel technologies a.k.a. NIC partitioning and 10GBASE-T. He also discussed sample converged topologies. If you missed the session his slides can be found on our Slideshare account. have been uploaded to slideshare.
