Fibre Channel options for Linux

Author: JT Smith "The main advantage of Fibre Channel is to have several computers share the same storage device. This is to a certain degree possible with a regular SCSI bus is but not
done too often. Trying to connect more than two computers may not be easy, involving problems like setting host-IDs and termination problems when a computer is
powered on or off. Using Fibre Channel to connect several computers to the same storage devices is trivial. However, this raises some new and challenging questions. If the
shared devices contain shared files, system problems may occur."
