Storage requirements are always growing. The industry transition from direct-attached storage (D A S) to isolated Storage Area Network (S A N) island s and now scalable, intelligent storage networking is underway. You can reduce datacentre operational costs b y applying autonomic computing technologies ,including the Cisco Intelligent Gigabit Ethernet Switch Module ( IEGSM ) and the Cisco MDS 9000 Family of storage area network (S A N) switches for storage management and virtualization and by consolidating storage and servers, as well as IP and SAN s to help simplify IT management. This trend delivers substantial cost of ownership and business resilience benefits, enabling efficient storage pooling and utilization and consistent data replication and mirroring for business continuance. Storage networking is the software and hard ware that enables storage consolidation, sharing, access, replication, and management ov er a shared network infrastructure. The proposed infrastructure has capability of accommodating a robust and high capacity storage network. Together with our storage networking partners, Hiqos technologies will design and implement an iSC SI-based cost effective storage network that fits into the proposed architecture. This solution will ex tend S A N coverage to all systems and locations at appropriate price and performance levels.
