I sure don't know the facts here but I thought that FCoE still had some issues in terms of multi-switch routing and the like so that, if true, the limitations of the Xsigo device may not be that big of a deal.. and assuming that the longevity of FC, in general, is questionable the value in waiting around for per-port prices to drop may not make much sense. It may be that the thing to do is converge now as well and as easily and as cheaply as possible and move on away from FC.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
