By Mike Flannagan

Development SANs with Brocade Fibre Channel cloth Switches is a pragmatic consultant to all the ideas essential to combine fibre-based switches to an IP-based community. It starts with a close research of the advantages of imposing a SAN and an exam of the and bandwidth necessities. From there, it proceeds to a dialogue of the Brocade SilkWorm sequence of fibre channel switches and the way a number of the switches are configured to attach a SAN with present LANs.

Server-detached storage can offer a more cost-effective storage solution, since a server is no longer necessary in order to distribute a file system over a multihost network. A SAN implemented using the Fibre Channel protocol incorporates the benefits of a channeled connection and a network. A channel is a high-speed information conduit but, unlike a network, it is hardware-intensive. Channels specialize in streaming data between two devices, such as your computer and a storage subsystem. Some examples of channel protocols are Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and High-Performance Parallel Interface (HiPPI).

Music and full-motion video, even with compression, take an immense amount of disk space, and the movement of studios and companies to run a “full digital” shop has resulted in an enormous demand for storage capacity. Databases, which used to be considered big if they were gigabytes in size, are now well beyond a terabyte—with companies talking about eventually having to manage petabytes of database storage. With the increased connectivity of the Internet, information and content are being generated and distributed faster than ever before in history—so much, in fact, that the University of California at Berkeley recently released a study that claims that more data will be created in the next two years than was produced in the history of mankind.

Through this evolution, SAN technology now offers a robust platform to establish and support the most important business applications. The benefits of building a SAN include ensuring high-availability access to data, consolidating storage resources and management, reducing backup windows and traffic, freeing host CPU cycles for other important tasks, and ensuring data availability through disaster tolerance techniques. Building a Fibre Channel SAN enables a more reliable, highly scalable, large bandwidth access to data.
