IP Storage in Data Center Applications
SAN adoption has occurred primarily in larger data centers.
IP storage networking can accelerate SAN adoption by simplifying installation and administration.
SANs are typically deployed as packaged solutions for specific applications.
Data centers may have multiple separate SANs, each focused on a particular application or department requirements.
Large-scale enterprise SANs have been hindered by lack of fabric interoperability.
IP storage solutions based on conventional Gigabit Ethernet switching facilitate enterprise-class SANs.
Server clusters provide high-availability access to applications and data.
Clustering software may provide failover on failure of a specific component ...
