Due to a reporting error, the story "EMC blesses Emulex FCoE adapters" misspelled the name of Joe Gervais, senior director of product marketing at Emulex.
The story has been corrected on the wire. The third, fourth, and fifth paragraphs now read as follows:
EMC has tested the CNAs under its E-Lab program and, starting in the next few weeks, will provide support for them, said Joe Gervais, senior director of product marketing at Emulex.
FCoE combines elements of Fibre Channel, the major storage network technology of the past 10 years, with Ethernet. The new standard, being developed by INCITS (the InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards), won't be formally completed until next year but is beyond the addition of any major changes, Gervais said.
The LP21000 family, announced in April, offers 10G bps performance and was designed in collaboration with Cisco to ensure interoperability with the networking giant's Nexus 5000 data-center switch. By combining several kinds of connectivity on one component, the converged network adapters reduce the number of adapters and cables required in each server, cutting space and power requirements in the process, Gervais said.
