The Data Center Bridging (DCB) Task Group (TG) is a part of the IEEE 802.1 Working Group. For general information, please refer to the 802.1 home page.
The charter of the DCB TG is to provide enhancements to existing 802.1 bridge specifications to satisfy the requirements of protocols and applications in the data center. Existing high-performance data centers typically comprise multiple application-specific networks that run on different link layer technologies; e.g. Fibre Channel for storage, InfiniBand for high-performance computing, Ethernet for network management and LAN connectivity. The specifications from this TG will enable 802.1 bridges to be used for the deployment of a converged network where all applications can be run over a single physical infrastructure.
Additionally, the DCB TG is working to address the impact of server virtualization technology through specifications for Edge Virtual Bridging (EVB) and Port Extenders.
The DCB TG does not have any active projects at this time. For new proposals, please contact the DCB TG chair, Pat Thaler, at least 45 days prior to the meeting in which they will be discussed.
There are currently no regularly scheduled conference calls. Information about any calls will be posted to the 802.1 reflector.
