1.3 Fibre Channel for Mass Storage


Since Fibre Channel is a generic data transport mechanism, Fibre Channel can transmit a number of existing networking and I/O protocols:

I/O protocols:

  • SCSI


  • IPI

Network protocols:

  • IP

  • IEEE 802.2

Hewlett-Packard has chosen to support the SCSI-3 protocol over Fibre Channel for its mass storage environment. Mass storage consists of several device classes:

  • tapes

  • disks

  • disk arrays
