Intel open-sources FCoE code under GPL 2

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

Intel has released a Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) software package to the open source community under GPL 2 terms. The company hopes that this move will encourage developers to create Linux-based software that will take advantage of Fibre Channel SAN traffic running over Ethernet. FCoE is expected to simplify network infrastructure in the datacenter by consolidating LAN and SAN traffic onto a single fabric.

The software is available for download at www.Open-FCoE.org.
