Media Alert: Ethernet Alliance Offering Webinar on Critical Role of Enhanced Transmission Selection (ETS) in Network Convergence via Data Center Bridging (DCB)
BEAVERTON, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and
advancement of Ethernet technologies, today announced that registration
for its latest webinar is now open at: http://conta.cc/14SoI82.
The webinar, which will examine the critical role of Enhanced
Transmission Selection (ETS) in network convergence via Data Center
Bridging (DCB), is scheduled for 8 am PST on Tuesday, February 26, 2013.
WHY ATTEND: More companies are seeking to�leverage the
efficiencies of�converging workloads onto Ethernet�infrastructures. A
critical requirement to realizing the benefits of convergence is the
ability to define�Quality of Service (QoS) policy to�prevent "starving"
workloads. This Ethernet Alliance (News - Alert) webinar will�examine how the ETS
capabilities of DCB prevent workload starvation by enforcing QoS policy.
The webinar also will cover how DCB Exchange (DCBx) enables�efficient,
automated and error-resistant changes to�the configuration of Ethernet
devices in the data center.
Webinar participants will explore an array of subjects, such as:
DCB's range of features for Ethernet, such as Priority-based Flow
Control (PFC); ETS, DCB Exchange (DCBx) and Congestion Notification
the impact of network convergence with and without ETS, and
DCBx's versions and their roles in DCB.
Hosted by the Ethernet Alliance, the presenter for this webinar is Ryan
Hardin, technical marketing engineer, storage area networking (SAN) with
NetApp. Areas of focus for Hardin include unified networking, Fibre
Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and storage.
WHEN: The webinar on DCB, ETS and DCBx will be presented at 8 am
PST. Free of charge to both Ethernet Alliance members and the general
public, the presentation will be followed by a period of questions and
answers. The webinar will also be archived for on-demand viewing at the
Ethernet Alliance website.

Advance registration is required and closes at 5 pm PST on Monday,
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: The Ethernet Alliance's webinar on DCB, ETS
and DCBx is ideally suited for anyone who is using or considering
converged Ethernet environments.
