What are Fibre Channel  SANs?

  • Fibre Channel is a complex networking technology that runs on copper cables and also fiber optic cables. Funnily enough, the term 'Fibre' in Fibre Channels is not due to its discovery by any English scientist or lover of Britain. Fibre channels owe their name probably to a desire to distinguish this networking technology from fiber optic cables on which the technology runs .
  • Fibre Channel technology is a  combination of Input/Output networking technology (I-O technology) and gigabit technologies that enables the technology to be used on copper wires and fiber optic cables.
  • Fibre Channel SANs ( storage area networks)  are today the favored storage area network technology and have replaced SCSI SANs all over the world.

Why are Fibre Channel SANs ( storage area networks )  so popular over SCSI SANs?
