    Ethernet Networked Storage – FAQ

    December 8th, 2016

    At our SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum (ESF) webcast “Re-Introduction to Ethernet Networked Storage,” we provided a solid foundation on Ethernet networked storage, the move to higher speeds, challenges, use cases and benefits. Here are answers to the questions we received during the live event. Q. Within the iWARP protocol there is a layer called MPA (Marker …Read More


    It’s Time for a Re-Introduction to Ethernet Networked Storage

    July 7th, 2016

    Ethernet technology had been a proven standard for over 30 years and there are many networked storage solutions based on Ethernet. While storage devices are evolving rapidly with new standards and specifications, Ethernet is moving towards higher speeds as well: 10Gbps, 25Gbps, 50Gbps and 100Gbps….making it time to re-introduce Ethernet Networked Storage. That’s exactly what …Read More


    New Webcast: Data Center Congestion Control

    August 5th, 2015

    How do new architectures being deployed in today’ s data centers affect IP-based storage? Find out on September 15th in our next SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum live Webcast, “Data Center Congestion Control,” where we will discuss new architectures and a new congestion control mechanism called CONGA. Developed from research done at Stanford, CONGA is a network-based distributed congestion-aware …Read More


    Relentless Advance Of Ethernet – And Ethernet Storage Networking

    March 31st, 2014

    As one Cisco colleague once said to me, “After the nuclear holocaust, there will be two things left: cockroaches and Ethernet.”  Not sure I like Ethernet’s unappealing company in that statement, but the truth it captures is that Ethernet, now entering its fifth decade (wow!), is ubiquitous and still continuing to advance at a breathtaking …Read More
