Solving the SAN Puzzle
A SAN is more than just a
A SAN is made up of:
SAN Device Management
SAN System Management
To make a SAN which is actually useful, you need an integrated set of
elements that includes:
Device management tools to manage the hardware infrastructure
SAN system management tools to manage higher-level functionality
such as storage allocation and data security, and to integrate SAN
management functions into the broader enterprise resource
Like a jigsaw puzzle, the separate pieces must fit together. Unlike a puzzle,
however, a SAN has significant overlap between the parts.
