a customer don't have FibreChannel lines between the datcenter and he don't want to use iSCSI as GAD cluster connect protocol.So what are the alternatives we have ?Would it be possible to use a FC-over-IP Gateways/Bridges to encapsulate FC frames into IP packets ?
It should work. I tried getting a link to some articles but couldn't find one right away. We did the same for some of our clients back when I worked as an engineer. To my knowledge GAD is supported as long as the induced latency isn't above 20ms.
