2 Fibre Channel is a key technology for storage
Fibre Channel is a serial communications technology designed to transfer large amounts of data among
a variety of hardware systems over long distances. It is a key technology for applications that require
shared, high bandwidth access to storage.
Fibre Channel provides a logical, point-to-point,
serial channel for the transfer of data between a
buffer at a source device and a buffer at a
destination device. It moves buffer contents from
one port to another, without regard to the format
or meaning of the data so different upper level
protocols are able to run over Fibre Channel
hardware.
The Fibre Channel architecture is structured as a
hierarchical set of protocol layers. Defined within
these layers are rules for signal interfaces, serial
encoding and decoding, error control, frame
format and communications protocols.
ATTO ExpressPCI Fibre Channel host adapters
carry SCSI protocol over Fibre Channel.
