F - Definitions

  • F

    failover

    Failover is a backup operational mode in which the functions of a system component (such as a processor, server, network, or database, for example) are assumed by secondary system components when the primary component becomes unavailable through either failure or scheduled down time.

  • fat provisioning (FP)

    Fat provisioning (FP) is the conventional storage provisioning model, in which space is allocated beyond current needs, in anticipation of growing need and increased data complexity... (Continued)

  • FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet)

    FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) is a storage protocol that enable Fibre Channel communications to run directly over Ethernet. FCoE makes it possible to converges storage and IP protocol traffic onto a single cable transport and interface.

  • Fibre Channel

    Fibre Channel is a technology for transmitting data between computer devices at data rates of up to 4 Gbps (and 10 Gbps in the near future). (Continued...)

  • Fibre Channel adapter

    A Fibre Channel (FC) adapter is a hardware component that provides connectivity from a server to a storage area network (SAN).

  • Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL)

    A Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL) is a high-speed Fibre Channel (FC) topology that can connect up to 126 ports on one controller using a one-way loop or hub design.

  • Fibre Channel director (FC director)

    A Fibre Channel (FC) director is a modular, chassis-based, high port-count switch that connects servers, switches and storage in a dedicated FC storage area network (SAN).

  • Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA)

    The Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA) is an international organization whose goal is to help its members promote Fibre Channel (FC) technology.

  • Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP or FC/IP)

    Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP or FC/IP, also known as Fibre Channel tunneling or storage tunneling) is an Internet Protocol (IP)-based storage networking technology developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

  • Fibre Channel port names

    Fibre Channel port names

  • Fibre Channel switch (FC switch)

    A Fibre Channel switch is a networking device that is compatible with the Fibre Channel (FC) protocol and designed for use in a dedicated storage area network (SAN).

  • FICON (Fiber Connectivity)

    FICON (for Fiber Connectivity) is a high-speed input/output (I/O) interface for mainframe computer connections to storage devices.

  • file storage

    File storage stores data in a hierarchical structure, usually in a NAS system. The system storing data and the client retrieving data see files and folders in the same format.

  • file synchronization (file sync)

    File synchronization, often used as a form of backup, is the process by which files residing in more than one physical location are kept up to date.

  • file system

    A file system is the method an operating system uses to name files and assign them locations for efficient storage and retrieval.
