While learning about Fibre Channel and SAN, I found the following information on IBM Knowledge Center:
A switched fabric is a fibre channel topology in which individual node ports are interconnected and managed by switches.
However, AFAIK, the concept of switched fabric consists of interconnecting various nodes via one or more network switches.
From the physical link POV, I think this is possible to do in Ethernet, since it is possible to connect several switches with nodes using Ethernet interfaces, and forwarding is also possible. Although I don't understand, why Ethernet doesn't support the switched fabric topology.
Why this technology is specific to FibreChannel, why not Ethernet as well?
