AoE sits above the MAC layer, doesn't it? So it would be at layer 3 of the ISO model, not "level 2". --Booch 19:18, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Well, it the author probably meant that it's on top of level 2, but an AoE designer tells me that AoE is technically level 5, being a remote procedure call sort of thing. Mentioning the OSI model so early in the article probably detracts from clarity. Thanks, I'll take it out. --EcashinCoraid 20:40, 15 June 2006 (UTC)


An alternative to iSCSI, the AoE specification is 8 pages compared with iSCSI's 257 pages.

This message that somebody wrote on the article, [ is this the document you are referring to] --Ramu50 (talk) 06:51, 10 June 2008 (UTC)


What do you mean by the following:

AoE support is currently being beta tested for the Solaris Operating Environment, Sparc and x86.


Do you mean that support for Solaris on top of Sparc and x86 is being beta-tested or what? The architectures are pretty orthogonal to the OS, as Linux supports both these hardware archs too. Thanks for putting up this article. Penedo 02:48, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Not routable accross LANs / small SANs only?[edit]

Couldn't you use MPLS to achieve this with ATAoE? Thedangerouskitchen (talk) 12:49, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Yes. I know this has been done with GRE. Quanstro (talk) 00:37, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
