With the advent of converged switching fabric, there is a great potential for overlap between storage and data networking. Being an integral part of the data center environment, I feel that the overlap is permissible. Thoughts?

  • I'm wondering if we should post these sorts of Qs with two answers. That way people can up vote the answer of their choosing, rather than having an up/down voting battle in one answer? May 14, 2013 at 14:50
  • after some comments to/from RCartaino, I'm dropping my secondary answer; see below. May 14, 2013 at 15:10

1 Answer 1


YES, storage and data networking questions would be ON TOPIC.

    For future reference, it's typically best to let users be heard with their own answers, rather than posting in this pseudo-polling format. Pre-posting all sides of the conversation isn't necessarily the best way to get the clearly-vetted results you seek: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… May 14, 2013 at 15:05
  • for posterity: RC's comment might seem out of context. At the time, I had posted a second answer enticing/encouraging people to vote poll-style. His comment is here, on this answer, to keep it from being lost when my second/uneeded answer was deleted. May 14, 2013 at 15:22
