Curious about the current state of SAN technology? Stephen Bigelow of TechTarget interviewed me (last summer) about SAN options, and the video is now live on their BitPipe site.
Topics covered include combined iSCSI and FC SANs, ups and downs of modular storage and oversubscribed switches, next-generation SAN management applications, storage virtualization, and best practices for SAN design.
Here’s a snip – the three best practices for SAN design are as follows:
- Choose reliable high-quality hardware
- Build dual redundant networks
- Protect management interfaces
