The value proposition of Unified Fabric is well understood: It dramatically reduces the number of adapters on the servers, the number of switch ports, and the associated cabling; it improves airflow; and it decreases capital and operating expenditures. Unified Fabric leverages IEEE Data Center Bridging standards to provide a lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet network infratsucture that benefit both Layer 2 and 3 transports and are therefore valuable independent of the I/O consolidation technique used: iSCSI, FCoE, network attached storage (NAS), or, most likely, some combination of these. This document gives comparison between iSCSI and FCoE and its implementation with Cisco Unified Fabric solutions.
