The arrival of FCoE makes it possible to meet all your storage and LAN networking needs with a single Ethernet fabric. However, it may also create some confusion because now you have both iSCSI and FCoE as viable options for Ethernet SANs. In the June issue of Tech OnTap, Silvano Gai of Cisco and Mike McNarmara of NetApp wrote an article that describes the differences between the two protocols with some guidelines for when you might choose one versus the other. They go on to discuss a variety of deployment scenarios and indicate which protocol is most appropriate for each scenario.
