How to Use a Network Appliance SAN for Server and Storage Consolidation


If you’re dealing with increasing demands on your server storage by adding servers one at a time, the number of servers is growing hand in hand with management complexity, while stretching your IT budget. Make sure your data assets are covered—find out how server and storage consolidation storage systems can simplify storage management, increase flexibility, and advance data protection and disaster recovery.

fibre storage  chose both NAS and Fibre Channel SAN to allow storage to be consolidated onto the existing NetApp storage systems. Although building a new Fibre Channel infrastructure can be expensive, the VMware/Network Appliance server to storage consolidation project server count was cut dramatically and overall expenditures were significantly reduced. Further reductions were made possible by utilizing NAS for many of applications that required fewer resources to function. Costs were also offset by the advantages of Read More

Buyer's Guide to Enterprise Storage Resources


Organizations of all sizes face similar challenges when managing storage—not enough capacity or protection. Help has arrived with Internet small computer system interface storage area networks (iSCSI SANs)—and they're steadily gaining momentum. With iSCSI SANs, businesses can effectively manage their storage needs, while lowering costs and increasing security. Find out why many industry leaders are choosing iSCSI today.

fibre storage  SANs deliver performance of Fibre Channel, but at a fraction of the cost. Although the price of storage hardware has been decreasing, the voracious demand for data and the accompanying increase in administrative costs threaten to swamp all other factors in reducing the total cost of ownership. The compound annual growth rate for storage is 68%, while administrative costs run seven times the cost of hardware. Mid-range businesses are stuck with inefficient direct-attached storage (DAS) or forced to invest Read More

Network Traffic Engineering Guidelines for Fibre Channel Switches


Scalability—or performance? In the past, storage area network (SAN) architects had to choose one over the other with regard to their SANs. Now, however, compromise is no longer necessary. Stackable switch solutions allow for seamless scaling and high performance—which means you can breathe as easily as your data transfers.

New Storage Array from Sun


Sun has launched an attempt to break into the ranks of large-scale and enterprise storage system vendors like EMC, IBM, and Compaq.

fibre storage  by using an end-to-end Fibre Channel hardware RAID controller with an optimized mirrored cache. The cache reduces mechanical disk seek and latency periods, optimizing physical disk I/O access patterns and reducing the number of drive accesses, which are the bottlenecks in most RAID storage systems. The system scales capacity, performance and availability in a linear and predictable fashion, with a capacity expansion range of 162 gigabytes (GB) to 88 terabytes (TB). As capacity increases, performance Read More

Architecting SANs for Successful Deployments


The first step to a successful storage area network (SAN) implementation is preplanning. Architecting a SAN not only helps solve issues of storage consolidation, it facilitates day-to-day data center support and maintenance. A SAN investment should save support dollars, not require additional support resources. With a sound implementation strategy, costly upgrades—and many headaches—can be avoided.
