Executive Summary

This paper describes a blueprint for network consolidation in the enterprise data center leveraging Ethernet as the unified fabric. To date, the deployment of Ethernet as the converged fabric to consolidate networking, storage and clustering traffic has largely not occurred because IT managers have had legitimate concerns about the proper isolation of the different traffic types, inability to leverage their existing SAN investments and increased operational complexities of a shared infrastructure. This paper describes how emerging storage and networking technologies are providing the missing pieces to enable a true unified fabric that addresses the aforementioned concerns.
