Target Driven Zoning - Storage -> FC-Switch

Recently , I am across some interesting work in the field of FC SAN, which is target driven zoning( from EMC & Brocade folks) , which allows the storage array to talk to the switch and send the zoning information to the switch ( after the mapping is completed ) and the switch basically based on the mapping  information from the array , commits the zoning configuration. Actually if you think about it, it does make sense , for one mapping/masking or zoning are almost twins and involve two main actors - Storage Array FE and Host WWPN which are part of both mapping and zoning.


I would like to know some thoughts from HDS on this ? I believe this will really change the Operations and lower the efforts considerably as well.
