Search Storage provides information to help select a pair for storage area networks (SAN) according to the needs of the user. Fibre Channel (FC) SANs and iSCSI SANs depend upon the user’s requirements and skill but provide the same solution to technical problems of network block storage. Small to medium-sized businesses use SAN.
Which technology is better? FC or iSCSI? This can’t be determined generally because for each specific business with different needs, the answer would be different. This white paper helps deconstruct each technology into its components and understand their benefits to help decide which would be better for the business. Although most businesses prefer iSCSI SAN, both are fierce competitors.
