All you need to know about Storage Area Networks
The amount of data of an average company doubles every year.
Thus, companies who own 1TB of data today will own 32TB in five
years. Storage networks help to tame such data quantities and to
manage this data growth efficiently. Since stored data and
information are the biggest asset of any company, anyone who is
involved in the planning or the operation of IT systems requires a
basic knowledge of the principle and the use of storage
"Storage Networks Explained" covers the fundaments, techniques
and functions of storage networks such as disk subsystems, Fibre
Channel SAN, Internet SCSI (iSCSI), Fibre Channel over Ethernet
(FCoE), Network Attached Storage (NAS), file systems, and storage
virtualization. Furthermore the authors describe the use of these
techniques and how they are designed to achieve high-availability,
flexibility, and scalability of data and applications. Additional
attention is given to network backup and the management of storage
networks. Written by leading experts in the field, this book on
storage area networks is updated and fully revised.
"Key features: "Presents the basic concepts of storage networks,
such as I/O techniques, disk subsystems, virtualization, NAS and
SAN file systemsCovers the design of storage networks which provide
flexible, highly-available, and scaleable IT systemsExplains the
use of storage networks for data sharing, data protection, and
digital archivingDiscusses management of storage networks using
SNMP, SMI-S, and IEEE 1244
This book provides system administrators and system architects,
as well as students and decision makers, with the tools needed for
optimal selection and cost-effective use of storage networks.
