Abstract: 

Fibre Channel is a high-speed data transfer protocol that provides in-order, lossless delivery of raw block data. It is designed to connect general purpose computers, mainframes and supercomputers to storage devices. The technology primarily supports point-to-point (two devices directly connected to each other) though most common found in switched fabric (devices connected by Fibre Channel switches) environments.
