Fibre Channel has been the gold standard protocol for connecting shared storage to servers for several decades now. Recently, new technologies like Flash storage, SSD's, memory class storage and NVMe have been deployed to allow servers and storage devices to be faster and deliver more performance. This would lead one to think that the time has come for Fibre Channel to be put out to pasture and for new protocols to be used to connect servers and storage together. The reality is however, Fibre Channel technology keeps advancing as well, and is more than capable for use with the high performance servers and storage arrays of today and tomorrow. In this podcast, we will explain some of the latest innovations in Fibre Channel connectivity and why Fibre Channel will remain the gold standard for shared storage connectivity.
