LAN/SAN Convergence, One Step at a Time

Louis Gray writes: "Ethernet will replace Fibre Channel in the way it has replaced Token Ring, FDDI and ATM, as it makes life much better for those who have to keep data centers running if they have less to worry about rather than more, and if they can apply the same skills across a wider solution platform. However, those vendors backing this change would be better served to bite off a smaller piece of the networking pie (just SAN for now) rather than trying to bring about a LAN and SAN convergence - a solution whose time has just not yet come."
