Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) is a proposed mapping of Fibre Channel frames over full duplex IEEE 802.3 networks. This allows Fibre Channel to leverage 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks while preserving the Fibre Channel protocol. The specification is supported by a large number of network and storage vendors, including Dune Networks, Absolute Analysis, ATTO Technology, BLADE Network Technologies, Bloombase, Broadcom, Brocade, Cisco, EMC, Emulex, XOdyne, Finisar, HP, IBM, Intel, Hitachi Data Systems, Mellanox, NetApp, PMC-Sierra, QLogic and Sun Microsystems.
