IV analyzing FCOE and DCE as alternative SAN Connectivity option

LOS ANGELES–September 24, 2010— Infinitely Virtual, a rapidly expanding provider of high quality and affordable virtual server technology, is pleased to announce the testing of Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Data Center Ethernet (DCE) as alternatives to traditional Storage Area Networking (SAN) connectivity.

About FCoE

FCoE allows companies' data centers to optimize increases in server virtualization. FCoE enables I/O consolidation and offers enhancements to the data center such as:
• Fewer Network Interface Cards per server
• Reduction in server power budget and reduced cooling requirements
• Significant reduction in the amount of cables to manage
• Seamless connectivity with existing SAN and Ethernet Networks–customers can continue to leverage their existing FC tools, security model and infrastructure

About DCE

DCE is a high-performance enhancement to the Ethernet standard that provides the networking infrastructure required by next generation data centers. Specifically, DCE provides architectural scalability, operational controls, and transport flexibility through standard Ethernet extensions. DCE allows architects to create a stable, lossless transport layer.

“We are excited about testing an option to maximize server virtualization. FCoE and DCE could provide customers with more flexibility and scalability, and helps Infinitely Virtual provide outstanding technology and service,” says Adam Stern, President and CEO of Infinitely Virtual.

The evaluation and testing of FCoE and DCE as alternatives to Standard Area Networking takes Infinitely Virtual further in its mission to constantly seek out and deliver practical, reliable and energy efficient virtual technology to clients at the industry's lowest prices.
