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.

White Paper Published By: Intel Corp.     Published Date: Aug 08, 2012
This report describes how improving the efficiency of data storage, deduplication solutions has enabled organizations to cost-justify the increased use of disk for backup and recovery. However, the changing demands on IT storage infrastructures have begun to strain the capabilities of initial deduplication products. To meet these demands, a new generation of deduplication solutions is emerging which scale easily, offer improved performance and availability and simplify management and integration within the IT storage infrastructure. HP refers to this new generation as "Deduplication 2.0.

White Paper Published By: Dell Storage     Published Date: Jan 16, 2009
System reliability is a vital component in Storage Area Network (SAN) design that keeps your production environment operating and avoids data loss and downtime. But since SANs are built using both mechanical and electronic parts, component failures due to usage, environmental factors, or manufacturing defects are not uncommon. Even in completely redundant systems, controllers can fail, fans can stop operating, power supplies can burn out, and disk drives can degrade or fail.

White Paper Published By: Alacritech     Published Date: Aug 21, 2009
IP storage using Internet SCSI (iSCSI) provides opportunity for many organizations looking to extend existing Fibre Channel SANs to stranded servers, or looking to deploy Ethernet-based SANs. It can reduce costs by allowing IT managers to take advantage of existing, familiar Ethernet networks. Often the biggest complaint white new technology like iSCSI is its ability to provide more than simple functionality and connectivity.
