Tony Bourke of The Data Center Overlords comments:
On my way back from South America, I was pointed to a bake-off/performance test commissioned by Brocade and performed by a company called Evaluator Group. It compared the performance of edge FCoE (non-multi-hop FCoE) to native 16 Gbit FC. The FCoE test was done on a Cisco UCS blade system connecting to a Brocade switch, and the FC was done on an HP C7000 chassis system connecting to the same switch. At first glance, it would seem to show that FC is superior to FCoE for a number of reasons.
Tony takes issue with a recent report about fibre channel. No matter which side of the debate you’re on, you have to admit that this kind of reporting does a disservice to the analyst community.
