Today, Nimble Storage publicly announced the availability of Fibre Channel on Nimble OS. I therefore felt we'd continue the Nimble:Connect blog series but dedicate a specific series purely to Fibre Channel (watch out for the 2.2 update series where my colleagues will cover what other features are incorporated into 2.2!). Over the next few days I will take you on a ground up tour of Nimble OS and Fibre Channel. The topics we will cover are:
|Blog #||Title||Blog Link||Video Link|
Introduction to Nimble FC, Setup and Install a FC Array
Provisioning Nimble FC Volume to Windows
Provisioning Nimble FC Volume to ESX Cluster
Provisioning Nimble FC Volume to Linux
Nimble FC Boot from SAN
In the Zone: A discussion around best practice with Fibre Channel Zones
As with many of my blog posts, I will supplement most of the posts above with some video so not only can you read about but also get a feel for what it looks like.
So if you need some more fibre in your storage diet hopefully this will be a good introduction!
