Fibre channel implementations for tape automation are following this same three-step process that was followed by RAID subsystems.
In the past, fibre RAID controllers required dual fibre host ports to provide transparent controller failover in dual active configurations and each host port required a Fibre Channel chip.
Fibre isn't really very easy to implement-- at least, not yet.
Due to the large number of components, and the multitude of physical and logical relationships to one another, robust configuration capabilities must be provided for the Fibre Channel SAN.
