SAN technology. The new Fibre Channel, IP, and virtualization initiatives covered in this work will enable customers to
implement comprehensive shared storage solutions that reduce management overhead and cost."
\u2014John Webster, Founder and SeniorAnalyst, Data Mobility Group

Storage Area Networks (SANs) are now recognized as the preferred solution for fulfilling institutions' and enterprises' critical data-storage needs. Whether powered by Fibre Channel or TCP/IP and Gigabit Ethernet technology, SANs far exceed the capabilities of traditional storage access methods. SANs are quickly becoming the solution of choice for organizations that require high-volume data-handling capacity.

Written for network developers, IT consultants, administrators, and managers, this updated and greatly expanded
edition of the best-selling Designing Storage Area Networks goes far beyond a straight description of technical
specifications and standards. The text offers practical guidelines for using diverse SAN technologies to solve existing
networking problems in large-scale corporate networks. With this book you will learn how the technologies work and
how to organize their components into an effective, scalable design. In doing so, you will discover today's best methods
for managing storage area networks, including new troubleshooting techniques.

Designing Storage Area Networks, Second Edition, also features detailed case studies that demonstrate how SANs can

solve a number of commonly encountered business challenges, including LAN-free and server-free tape backup, server
clustering, and disaster recovery. As an information-systems professional, you must keep pace with this powerful,
evolving technology.
