Abstract: 

Storage area networks based on 16 Gigabit/second Fibre Channel (16GFC) will be deployed in 2011 and double the throughput of 8GFC SANs. This presentation will give historical perspectives on the 7 generations of Fibre Channel and how 16GFC is different from other Fibre Channel speeds. The presentation will investigate applications that need 16GFC and the benefits of using 16GFC. The presentation will also discuss the latest developments of 32GFC and hardware that is driving the need for more speed.
