Checkout my latest Dell Networking document and learn how to deploy FCoE using the Dell S5000 converged switch: “Dell Networking S5000: Deployment of a Converged Infrastructure with FCoE“.
In the Dell Networking S5000: The Building Blocks of Unified Fabric and LAN/SAN Convergence whitepaper I demonstrated and explained the movement from a traditional non-converged LAN/SAN network to a converged LAN/SAN infrastructure and how the Dell S5000 switch is an ideal solution for this transition. In addition, I covered the many benefits of moving to a converged infrastructure such as less maintenance and considerable cost savings. The Dell S5000 converged switch with its unique modular design allows end users to migrate to a converged solution and increase port count at their own pace without replacing the entire switch. This benefit is unmatched in the industry. In this deployment guide, I cover detailed Dell S5000 topology and configuration examples.
