Marginal links and congestion have plagued storage fabrics for years and many independent solutions have been tried. The Fibre Channel industry has been keenly aware of this issue and, over the course of the last two years, has created the architectural foundation for a common ecosystem solution. Fabric Notifications employs a simple message system to provide registered participants with information about key events in the fabric that are used to automatically address link integrity and congestion issues. This new technology has been embraced by the Fibre Channel community and has demonstrated a significant improvement in addressing the nagging issues. In this informative session, storage experts will discuss the evolution of this technology and how it is a step toward a truly autonomous SAN.

  • Provide an introduction to Fabric Notifications as defined by the Fibre Channel standards.
  • Describe the mechanisms and techniques for implementing Fabric Notifications.
  • Examine specific deployments of Fabric Notifications for servers and storage.
