IBM and FCoE: The Unified Networking Superstore

I expected this series about vendor perspectives on FCoE to wrap-up last week, but a few very prominent industry leaders have stepped up and asked to be heard. One of those companies qualifies as prominent because of its extensive experience (founded in 1896 as the Tabulating Machine Company), track record of innovation (more than 40,000 active patents), and proven results in bringing information technology to market (over $100 billion in revenue). The company is also known affectionately as Big Blue.

Responding to my questions for IBM was an individual equally impressive in the field of storage networking. Clod Barrera is a Distinguished Engineer and the Chief Technical Strategist for IBM System Storage, a founding member of the Storage Networking Industry Association and has served on its Board of Directors.
