ABSTRACT:

Today's data centers are faced with many challenges such as consolidation, resources optimization, power, cooling, cost reduction and more. Cisco foresaw these requirements and developed Virtual Storage Area Networks (VSANs) in 2002 to address these issues in the data center.

 

By using VSANs, customers can consolidate separate physical SAN fabrics into one large fabric for ease of management and reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) while providing secure and reliable isolation of different storage islands. Additionally, the use of IVR and VSANs allows the sharing of common infrastructure and resources like tape libraries, further reducing storage and network expenditures.
