What are the advantages and disadvantages for pure IP over IP-enabled solutions?
Pure IP has no conversion or encapsulation process. While we do move things awfully fast these days, the additional overhead for conversion or encapsulation can mean smaller data portions in a packet and some delay in transmission. The benefit of IP-enabled solutions is that you do not have to maintain multiple protocols or in some cases multiple switches to handle the other types of information (SCSI commands, for example.) iSCSI is SCSI commands encapsulated into IP so they could move through an IP switch.
