Special Edition Using Storage Area Networks opens with an overview of the need for data storage in an enterprise environment, the different types of data storage devices, and existing data storage techniques. The authors build on that foundation with an exploration of the evolution of SAN, the various networking models and data-centric applications, a chapter dedicated to fiber channel, and practical solutions for centralized, heterogeneous, and high-speed data storage challenges. The second half delves into more practical applications of the SAN: designing, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting a SAN. It provides solutions for alternative SAN vendors, comparing SAN schemes for competitive products. The last chapter explores how SAN fits into the current Web scenario, and VI Architecture as a new system of cluster communications.
