    Hi there, 

    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.
