Ethernet over 8GBit FC ports?


Has anyone setup ethernet over a fiber port?
We have lots of 8Gb fiber HBA/ports available on our switches and hosts, but do not have the money to spend on a 10GBe switch.
I would like to know how (with details) to setup ethernet over fiber ports so we can get faster network speeds between our servers by using the 8GBit FC ports rather than the 1GBe RJ45 ports.

It appears as though there is an RFC for IP communication over FC. I have never heard of anyone implementing it though.

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2625

I don't think FC was really meant to do this.

Thanks, I was hoping that since FCoE existed, perhaps EoFC existed as well.
The FC HBA's and switches are so much cheaper than the ethernet ones...
