This question would probably be a bit more appropriate for the Server Networking or Storage threads, but those are all but completely dead. There are like 2 people and a dog on those threads and questions go unaddressed for days and weeks at a time.

Does anyone here have an informed opinion (probably through practical experience) regarding the iSCSI vs. FCoE speed debate going on? Which method of I/O consolidation and fabric unification is "better"? Of course each technology has its advantages and disadvantages...

I know that Cisco has invested a lot in FCoE and they have gotten large technology partners, like EMC, to join their caravan.

Please dont give me an explanation of each technology and a link to some resource. I know what each technology does and how it works. I am looking for informed opinion regarding performance.
