Following is my understanding of fencing:

There are three type of fencing (excluding manual):
1. Power fencing -- using IP enabled power strips
2. In-band fencing -- using RSA, ILO, IPMI and the such -- sorta power fencing
3. Storage fencing -- using the SAN fabric Switch

Please correct me if I am wrong
