ATA over Ethernet for converged data center networks? No way
ATA over Ethernet is pitched as a solution for converged data center networks, but ATAoE has a host of technology shortcomings, including a lack of packet loss recovery and shaky security, according to Fast Packet blogger Ivan Pepelnjak. So why bother?
