SAN Storage & Data Protection Consulting
Storage Area Network technology
has been around since the late 1990s, but historically it was
priced far out of the range of small IT departments. Now this
option for making more-efficient use of data storage has become
affordable for all but the smallest of IT shops.
SAN storage devices are disk arrays located
on a network storage device shared with multiple servers--up to
16 servers, for these models. To each server operating system,
however, the storage that a SAN storage device provides appears
to be dedicated, not shared.
It used to be that when you bought a
server, you guessed how much storage you would need, and then
bought disks based on that often-underestimated number. When
your needs outgrew your disk capacity, you had to back up the
server, replace the disks, and restore the data. With a SAN
storage area network, however, you buy only as much storage as
you initially need, and then expand as you go. This save your
company money in hardware costs and energy consumption, and it
reduces IT personnel workload and system downtime.
