I have two Linux boxes, each having 10 TB local disk storage. Both access a 24 TB Fiber Channel disk array via QLogic 2460 HBAs and a QLogic 5600 FC switch, works very well. The Linux boxes share each others local storage via NFS, which also works but it is less than optimal. Can they share their 10 TB local storage via FC?
