The JNI X8 architecture achieves high performance and low cost in server and embedded applications by integrating two fully independent Fibre Channel protocol engines, four embedded 200+MHz Tensilica Xtensa processors per channel, 1-2-4gigabits per second (Gb) SERDES, a 10Gb attachment unit interface (XAUI), internal and external memory controllers.
Sandorfi worked closely with industry leaders to help develop the Fibre Channel protocol in its infancy, and was instrumental in bringing Fibre Channel connectivity to EMC products.
By contrast, a computer would access a SAN storage device using a SCSI block protocol such as Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) or Internet Fibre Channel Protocol (iSCSI).
In the standards arena, the Internet Fibre Channel Protocol (iFCP) was ratified by the Internet Engineering Task Force (RFC 4172), joining Fibre Channel over TCP/IP (FCIP) (ratified in 2004 - RFC 3821) and iSCSI (ratified in 2003 - RFC 3720).
Combination of Fibre Channel Protocol Analysis, Traffic Generation and Performance Test Reduces Costs, Complexity of Testing Heterogeneous Environments Agilent Technologies Inc.
Storage is supported by SCSI and Fibre Channel protocols and is tied to physical, mechanical devices that require high speed throughput.
Compared to SANs built using Fibre Channel protocol, IP-SAN offers a number of advantages including lower cost, since iSCSI host bus adapters, switches and storage are less expensive than Fibre Channel devices.
