It is natural for SANs to evolve to 8Gb Fibre Channel. This paper describes the considerations involved in a 8Gb SAN infrastructure upgrade and focuses on the key benefits an organization can realize from deploying a next-generation 8Gb SAN. Today's organizations must weigh any decision to upgrade to an 8Gb SAN infrastructure against their current and future service requirements in terms of functionality, scalability, and strategic growth. However, if the SAN is part of an IT infrastructure that is expected to keep pace with technology advancements and server virtualization, 8Gb SAN solutions should be an integral part of any strategic storage infrastructure plan. Increased throughput, investment protection with backward compatibility, and less SAN infrastructure (fewer ports) provide the benefits of increased SAN performance, reliability, and availability.
