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: Dell Storage     Published Date: Jan 16, 2009
Storage consolidation was a launching point for various new technologies delivering advanced functionality. The next generational shift that is in process will free storage administrators from handling storage provisioning for applications – instead, applications will be able to request and provision storage for themselves. While today multiple tools are required to add storage to your database, soon the database will be able to take care of that itself.
