Storage Networking Applications
Content Distribution Applications
Content distribution applications:
Web and application hosting
Key benefits of SAN:
Highly scalable bandwidth
Content distribution is the “product” for many Internet businesses:
ISPs, ASPs, and online media providers use these applications to push
content across private networks to multiple points-of-presence.
The video broadcasting industry pushes even more massive amounts of
data across their own specialized networks.
These businesses are service providers that are often subject to SLAs
that specify financial penalties for downtime and poor performance.
Content distribution applications require highly scalable bandwidth for
both data networks and storage I/O.
