Designing storage area networks


Abstract: From the publisher''s Website: Written for network developers, technical staff, IT consultants, administrators, and managers, Designing Storage Area Networks goes far beyond a straight description of Fibre Channel specifications and standards; it offers practical guidelines for implementing and utilizing SANs to solve the real-world needs of business networks. This concise design and implementation guide introduces Fibre Channel SAN technology and demonstrates exactly how it can be used to address specific application challenges--from server clustering to ISP hosting, server-free tape backup to full-motion video. With this book, you will learn how Fibre Channel works and how to organize Fibre Channel components into an effective, scalable design; and you will discover today''s best methods for managing storage area networks and volumes, including new troubleshooting techniques.
