Storage Area Networks

A Storage Area Network (SAN) is a network designed to attach computer storage devices such as disk array controllers and tape libraries to servers. As of 2006, SANs are most commonly found in enterprise storage. A SAN allows a machine to connect to remote targets such as disks and tape drives on a network for block level I/O.
