Fiber Channel over 10 Gig Ethernet

Intel today released open source code for encapsulating Fiber Channel packets in Ethernet Frames which can be then transported over 10 Gig Ethernet. The software designed for linux is available on Open-FCoE.org. I expect that this will bring in more 10 Gig Ethernet stuff in SANs and data center environments where Fiber Channel has been pretty dominant till now.
