Storage Networks will appeal to any systems administrator, architect, or manager with large data resources to manage, rather than being based on a specific vendor offering.

This book stresses the application of the technology to non-traditional IT buyers such as video and music production studios and medical diagnostic imaging technicians. With the rapid adoption of digital processing for images and sound, storage networks have a great use outside of the data center. At the same time, the benefits of recoverability, performance, and manageability will benefit any storage network user. This book appeals to both sets of readers.-->Table of Contents-->A Walk Around the Technology Hard Disk Technology Networks SCSI: The Specification, Architecture, and Command Set RAID Levels and Logical Volumes File Systems and Network Protocols SAN Backup and Recovery Storage Security Storage Networks Software and Content Do-It-Yourself Network Storage Components Vendor Offerings Making the Business Case for Storage Networks Future Directions for Storage Networks
