Ethernet is replacing the traditional storage networking technologies like fiber channel and Infiniband in Datacenters. The key feature of these traditional technologies that make them suitable for datacenter is their low-loss low-delay operation. Consequently IEEE 802.1 standards committee is developing new specification for congestion management for Ethernet in datacenter networks. Backward congestion notification (BCN) and forward explicit congestion notification (FECN) are two initial… CONTINUE READING
