Fibre Channel over Ethernet

Fibre Channel over Ethernet ( FCoE ) is a computer network technology that encapsulates Fibre Channel frames over Ethernet networks. This allows Fibre Channel to use 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks (or higher speeds) while preserving the Fibre Channel protocol. The specification was part of the International Committee for Information Technology Standards T11 FC-BB-5 standard published in 2009 (As descripted on Wikipedia) I just orphaned the FCoE packages for Debian. I don’t really have the time and enthusiasm to maintain FCoE any more. [Read More]

Fibre Channel over Ethernet - FCoE

With the final package, fcoe-utils, clearing the NEW packages queue, the Open-FCoE project’s Fibre Channel over Ethernet stack is now in the Debian archive. I had anticipated to have access to FCoE hardware by the time the packaging would complete but that didn ’t work out. It has been delayed, hence the packages are in experimental. If you have access to FCoE hardware, please test and provide your feedback.
