Storage Area Networks

Storage Area Networking is a Major Component of your overall network

As an IT organization provides access or communication of their data from the storage level to the server level, Storage Area Networks (SAN’s) have become an important “communication backbone” within every organization. In today’s environment, the SAN is a major component of the overall network of computing resources for the data center.

Most organizations are building out their SAN’s to support:

  • Archival and Retrieval
  • Backup and Restore
  • Data Migration from one storage device to another
  • Disk Mirroring
  • High Performance Computing
  • Server I/O Consolidation
  • Sharing Data Amongst Different Servers
  • Virtualization
