This IBM Redbooks publication focuses on the 4Gb end-to-end Fibre Channel (FC) SAN solution for the IBM BladeCenter in the small to mid-sized businesses (SMB) and enterprise workgroup market.
In this book, we discuss the elements for constructing a BladeCenter SAN environment. We talk about the supported FC daughter cards, FC switch modules, external FC switches, and storage systems used in our lab environment. These items were used to construct an OEM environment to demonstrate the use of our storage vendor products and the interoperability of the IBM BladeCenter FC switch modules.
This book discusses the prerequisites, the installation, and the configuration of QLogic, McData, and Brocade switch modules in a homogeneous environment, as well as heterogeneous environments.
