Nexus 5K - Data Center to Data Center

Hi All,

A scenario was recently presented to me that involved connecting two SANs between two Data Centers.  One of the Data Centers is existing and utilizes Nexus 5K switches while the other Data Center will be greenfield and is currently just a shell.

From what I've been reading the Nexus 5K does not support FCIP and I have some concerns regarding the feasibility to perform SAN to SAN over a Service Providers WDM infrastructure; mainly due to cost.  More reading suggested that this could not be done with FCoE.

Just wanted to pick everyones brain regarding what solutions are available to interconnect two SANs between Data Centers.  The solution would involve using a Service Provider, Ethernet and WDM services are available to both locations.

You can add a pair of MDS9222i in the middle. This will take care of FCIP, DWDM traffic.
