Nimble Fibre Channel - A Detailed Exploration

Blog Post created by rfenton Employee on Nov 18, 2014

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:

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!
