Key benefits of SAN:
Database applications often require the enhanced reliability and performance
that SANs offer:
Continuous uptime is a requirement, but so is cost containment.
Capacity must be able to scale both quickly and massively.
Performance must scale to match capacity: databases must often be
clustered to provide scalable performance, and I/O latency must be
reduced as much as possible.
