What is Fibre Channel?

Fibre Channel (FC) is a network technology used to connect computer data storage, like iSCSI.

Despite its name, Fibre Channel signaling can run on an electrical interface in addition to fiber-optic cables.

Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) is a transport protocol, like TCP/IP, that predominantly transports SCSI commands over Fibre Channel networks.

What is FTP?

FTP is the acronym for File Transfer Protocol, a standard network protocol that allows to transfer files from a host to another one over a TCP netowrk like the Internet or a local network.

FTP is built on a client-server architecture so there is a remote FTP server to which we send or grab files with a FTP client. The client must authenticate with the server in order to allow the download or the upload of the files.
