TITLE: What is Data Center Ethernet (DCE)?
AUTHOR: Robert Elling
DATE: October 2008
DESCRIPTION: This document will review what Data Center Ethernet is.
Please review the summary below.

Summary of Material:

A unified fabric is the end-state network where LAN, storage area network (SAN), and

interprocess communication (IPC) traffic are converged onto a single network infrastructure.

Data Center Ethernet (DCE) is the foundation for delivering a unified fabric. DCE will also appeal to customers who are not planning for consolidated I/O due to its Layer 2 multipathing capabilities and its lossless service behavior.
DCE comprises a set of Ethernet enhancement standards that adhere to the emerging IEEE data center bridging specification.
