In this blog, I’ll explain why Ethernet Storage Fabrics are needed and why these HPE M-series switches are an excellent choice for storage connectivity.
Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, there was only one serious storage network—and that was Fibre Channel (FC). While it was expensive and could only handle block storage, FC made sense for several reasons:
