Abstract: 

This presentation will be of interest to developers looking to deploy IP in place of FC technologies. We will share how we developed a replacement for FC using IP technology to provide functionally equivalent and performant synchronous DR, and the problems and solutions we discovered while doing this. We replaced FCP remote connectivity with iSCSI, which also removed the need to provision FCP to SAS thru converting 3rd party hardware; and we also replaced custom written RDMA over FC with iWARP/RoCE.

Learning Objectives:
1. Plug-and-play sync replication architecture
2. iWARP/RDMA over long distances
3. iSCSI for RAID mirroring
