Q

There is no QoS in FC

Can Fibre Channel fabrics handle quality of service, i.e. prioritized storage traffic and bandwidth guarantees according to given rules?

No, there is no QoS in Fibre Channel. Theoretically, Class 1 gives it to you but there are no Class 1 switches that I know of (Inrange maybe). Even so, there are no Class 1 HBAs.
