When Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) arrived in the IT industry (mainly storage network) several years ago, many experts expected companies to adopt it into their business. However, it didn't happen due to several factors including limited cost advantages and organizational disruption. But now, experts are starting to see the adoption taking place which leads to the question: Is it time to consider FCoE for your organization?

What does your company consider when looking at cloud costs?

As more companies continue to look at adopting the cloud, one of the biggest benefits is the potential for it to become a cost-saving technology. The SearchCIO team recently had the chance to talk to Forrester Research Vice President James Staten on different factors CIOs need to consider when looking at cloud costs including: Agility, existing legacy systems and current staffs. Do you agree with these factors? What does your company consider when looking at cloud costs? Michael Tidmarsh Profile: Michael Tidmarsh

    I think some of the other aspects that companies usually look for also include 'security' as an important factor. 

    In general, Banking and Finance institutions pay special attention to "security" when it comes to deciding about cloud I believe.

What's the most important consideration when choosing thin clients for VDI?

As you choose thin client devices for your virtual desktop infrastructure, it's important to consider the manageability of those devices and how they integrate with your existing systems. But don't forget about thin client performance. Alastair Cooke Profile: demitasse

    There are to many assumptions and factual inaccuracies in this article.

    6+ years lifespan? Most vendors are dropping support after 4-5 mainly because the likes of Citrix and Co add features that push the capabilities of the hardware.

    People are better off re-purposing kit and/or purchasing small form factor PCs running Win ThinPC for a similar/lower cost with 4 - 5 year lifespan and the h/w muscle to last that long.

    ThinKIOSK, DevonIT, etc all have re-purposing software with great centralised management and next to no cost.

    I'm not saying there is no use case but as a PC replacement plan stay clear. I've yet to see a happy customer of any thin client after 3/4 years - And I know a lot of customers!
