SAN School I: Welcome to the World of Storage
This session focuses on the storage topics and concepts that we in the industry sometimes take for granted. Foskett starts with an overview of the various components and terms, such as the difference among SAN, NAS and DAS. Then Foskett talks about RAID levels and how they are commonly used. The session finishes with an overview of the major storage devices. This session moves from disk storage in general to Storage Area Networks in particular.
By attending, you learn:
- The Basics: What "storage" is, block vs file, SCSI/Fibre Channel/NAS *RAID Levels: 0, 1, 4, 5, layered
- Centralized Storage Devices: Modular vs monolithic, NAS
- SAN Futures: Where the industry is headed
The session assumes no prior knowledge of SAN-related topics, but requires familiarity with basic IT terms (SCSI, IP, LAN, Server) but very little else.
