Dr. J Metz (@drjmetz) R&D Engineer for the Office of the CTO at Cisco (@cisco) joins us this week on The Hot Aisle and expertly educates us on a number of storage (and not-so-storage) related topics including but not limited to: Fibre Channel, FCoE, Ethernet, iSCSI, PCIe, NVMe, NVMf, iSCSI, RDMA over Ethernet, and More! Our conclusion? Fibre Channel is NOT Dead – but you should listen and decide for yourself! Your hosts Brent Piatti (@BrentPiatti) and Brian Carpenter (@intheDC) break down the myth of “One Storage Protocol to Rule them All”, Why When you might choose FC or FCoE, and what “Deterministic” & “Non-deterministic” are (plus, why it absolutely matters to your storage architecture). So pop in your ear-buds and crank to volume to 100 to ensure lossless transmission of this capsule of knowledge.
