STORAGE

DAS: DIRECT ATTACHED STORAGE NAS: NETWORK ATTACHED STORAGE CAS: CONTENT ADDRESSABLE STORAGE SAN: STORAGE AREA NETWORK

DIRECT ATTACHED STORAGE

CAPTIVE STORAGE ESCON, PARALLEL SCSI OR DIRECT ATTACHED FIBER CHANNEL. LIMITED DISTANCE AND SHARING CAPABILITIES.

NETWORK ATTACHED STORAGE

UNLIMITED DISTANCE NFS AND WINDOWS NETWORK “SHARES” ARE TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

CONTENT ADDRESSABLE STORAGE

FIXED CONTENT DATA DATA IS ACCESSED USING UNIQUELY CALCULATED CONTENT ADDRESS (CA) CLIENT APPLICATION ACCESS USING API OVER IP NETWORK.

WRITE CACHE IS MIRROD BETWEEN STORAGE PROCESSOR FOR AVAILABILITY USING THE CMI. THAT MANAGE PHYSICAL DRIVES ON THE BACK AND SERVICE HOST REQUEST ON THE FRONTEND. CLARiiON MESSAGING INTERFACE (CMI) ---------. HUBS ABD SWITCHED GREATER DISTANCE AND MORE. . 512 BYTES ARE DEDICATED TO HOST DATA.STORAGE AREA NETWORK APPLICATION OF NETWORK TECHNOLOGY TO SOLVE CAHNNEL LIMITATIONS. CLARiiON DISK SECTORS CONTAINS 520 BYTES EACH. FLEXIBLE IN SHARING STORAGE SYSTEMS. WHILE OTHER 8 BYTES ARE USED FOR HOUSEKEEPING PURPOSE.CX3 MIRROD WRITE CACHE. CLARIION FOUNDATIONS: FIRST FULL FIBER CHANNEL STORAGE SYSTEM FIRST 4GB END TO END STORAGE SOLUTION CLARiiON ARCHITECTURE IS BASE ON INTELLIGENT STORAGE PROCESSOR/BLADES (SPs). BE IT FIBER CHANNEL(FC) OR iSCSI PROTOCOL.

LUN MASKING IS IMPLEMENTED PRIMARILY AT HBA LEVEL. FCP: IS THE INTERFACE PROTOCOL OF SCSI ON THE FIBERCHANNEL. LAYOUT: HOST AND STORAGE LAYOUT THE CORRECT WAY TO ATTACH HOSTS AND STORAGE TO A SAN IS COMPLETELY DEPENDANT UPON CUSTOMER ENVIRONENT. LUN MASKING: LUN(LOGICAL UNIT NUMBER) MASKING IS AN AUTHORIZATION PROCESS THAT MAKES A LUN AVAILABLE TO SOME HOSTS AND UNAVAILABLE TO OTHER HOSTS. ALPA – ARBIRATED LOOP PHYSICAL ADDRESS CONTROL CENTER CONSOLE – FULL END – END MANAGEMENT. IFCP: IS A GATEWAY TO GATEWAY PROTOCOL WHICH PROVIDES FIBER CHANNEL FABRIC SERVICES TO FIBER CHANNEL DEVICES AVER TCP/IP NETWORK.PSM: PERSISTANT STORAGE MANAGER IS A HIDDEN LUN THAT RECORDS CONFIGURATION INFORMATION. ACCESS CONTROL IS IMPLEMENTED IN CLARiiON USING ACCESS LOGIX CODE THAT RUNS IN THE STORAGE PROCESSOR. THE BEST PRACTICE PLACED HOSTS ON EDGE SWITCHES AND HIGHUSE STORAGE PORTS ON CORE SWITCHES. . THE ELEMENT SIZE IS CONFIGURABLE ON A PER LUN BASIS AND MUST BE SETUP WHEN THE LUN IS CREATED. FCIP: RELIES ON IP-BASED NETWORK SERVICES TO PROVIDE THE CONNECTIVITY BETWEEN THE SAN ISLANDS OVER LAN OR WAN. META LUN IS CREATED BY COMBINING LUNS. DEVICE: GATEKEEPER DEVICE: LOW LEVEL I/O COMMANDS ISSUES USING SYMMCLI ARE ROUTED TO A SYMMETRIX ARRAY VIA SYMMETRIX STORAGE DEVICE IS SPECIFIED AS A GATEKEEPER DEVICE. SET OF STRIPED LUNS IS CALLED A COMPONENT LUNS ARE ASSIGNED TO STORAGE GROUP.

EACH DEVICE IN A SAN MAY BE PLACED INTO MULTIPLE ZONES. HARESH MAITREYA KV . SAN ZONING MAY BE UTILIZED TO IMPLEMENT COMPARTMENTALIZATION OF DATA FOR SECURITY PURPOSES. HARD AND SOFT ZONING: HARD ZOANING PHYSICALLY BLOCKS ACCESS TO A ZONE FROM ANY DEVICE OUTSIDE OF THE ZONE. SOFT ZOANING USES FILTERING IMPLEMETED IN FIBER CHANNEL SWITCHES TO PREVENT PORTS FROM BEING SEEN FROM OUTSIDE OF THEIR ASSIGNED ZONES. WITH PORT ZOANING.SAN ZONING: IS A METHOD OF ARRANGING FIBER CHANNEL DEVICES INTO LOGICAL GROUPS OVER THE PHYSICAL CONFIGURATION OF THE FABRIC. PORT ZOANING DOES NOT ALLOW ZONES TO OVERLAP. PORT ZOANING: UTILIZES PHYSICAL PORTS TO DEFINE SECURITY ZONES. IN ADDITION. A USERS ACCESS TO DATA IS DETERMINED BY WHAT PHYSICAL PORT THE USER IS CONNECTED TO. ZOAN INFORMATION MUST BE UPDATED EVERY TIME A USER CHANGES SWITCH PORTS.
