Data Center Bridging
Data Center Bridging or DCB is a suite created by Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standards. It enables Converged Fabrics in the data center, where data networking, storage, cluster IPC and traffic management share the same infrastructure of Ethernet network. Currently, data centers typically have multiple applications-specific networks that run on separate link layer technologies such as fibre channel (FC) and Ethernet. This method is for enhancing Ethernet to deploy a single converged network for all the data center application.
