Computerworld: The product has been in development for some time, but now Intel has officially released free software for Fibre Channel Over Ethernet (FCOE). Called "Open FCOE," the software can help ease data center migrations to a single network infrastructure. It currently supports Windows, Red Hat and SUSE Linux operating systems; EMC and NetApp storage platforms; and Cisco and Brocade Communications switches.
Crehan Research analyst Seamus Crehan reports that enterprise adoption of FCOE has been doubling each year. This new software could speed adoption even more.
