sponsored by Storage Decisions sponsored by CIENA Corporation

In this session from Storage Decisions New York, 2006 Stephen Foskett focuses on the storage topics and concepts that can sometimes be taken for granted. Stephen starts with an overview of the various components and terms, such as the difference among SAN, NAS and DAS, and continues with RAID levels and how they are commonly used.

  • The basics - what "storage" is, block vs. file, SCSI/Fibre Channel/NAS
  • RAID levels - 0, 1, 4, 5, layered
  • Centralized storage devices - modular vs. monolithicNAS
  • The case for centralizing storage
  • SAN futures - where the industry is headed
