13 Dec 2016 NVMe over fabrics vs Fibre Channel, Ethernet, Infiniband [58919]
ComputerWeekly, December 13th, 2016

"NVMe over fabrics takes the built-for-flash advantages of the PCIe-based protocol, and allows NVMe to be sent via Fibre Channel, Ethernet and Infiniband networks...

We recently looked at NVMe, a PCIe-based protocol that allows computers to communicate with storage in a way optimised for flash storage, with huge increases in input/output (I/O) and throughput possible compared with spinning disk-era SAS and SATA protocols..."

20 Sep 2016 Dell EMC, Fujitsu, HDS And NetApp Now Shipping Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel Solutions [56425]
Key Finding From Gartner: Fibre Channel Will Remain Protocol of Choice for Next Decade

Brocade announced continued momentum for its GEN 6 FIBRE CHANNEL STORAGE NETWORKING solutions with availability from its key OEM partners, including Dell EMC, Fujitsu and NetApp. This announcement is in addition to Hitachi Data Systems shipping Brocade Gen 6 directors, blade and switch since July, reinforcing Fibre Channel as the protocol of choice for mission-critical enterprise storage.

A June 2016 Gartner report, "The Future of Storage Protocols," states that "storage networking investments are becoming a critical top priority due to the adoption of high-throughput, solid-state and flash storage... Storage performance bottlenecks are moving out of arrays and into the storage network, so Fibre Channel will remain as the data center storage protocol of choice for the next decade."
