Now U See Me, Now U Don't

After speaking with a number of storage and server vendors this week, it has become apparent to me that Emulex's much talked about "UCNA" is nowhere to be found. Some vendors who have standardized on Emulex's FC stack are growing increasingly concerned that their sole dependence on Emulex is causing them to be late to the game with FCoE. This means greater opportunities for Brocade and QLogic, who, as I mentioned in my previous blog, are well ahead of Emulex and its UCNA.

With regards to my previous blog comment about FCoE shaping up to be a two horse race,  I am willing to reconsider and add another horse to the race. Stay tuned and I'll name that horse in an upcoming blog entry. However, it's pretty clear who the front runners are as they head around the first turn.
