Managing Access Control through SAS Zoning

Managing Access Control through SAS Zoning

Cover
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is gaining popularity in small SAN environments. With this rise in popularity comes the need to segregate and manage device traffic in a similar way to what is already done in larger Fibre Channel networks by using zones. This strategy enables IT administrators to create much more flexible, scalable and efficient server networks that meet their business needs.

This white paper explores how SAS zoning can meet these zoning and access control needs and provides an overview of SAS zoning operation and implementation. Download this white paper to discover all of the management benefits that SAS zoning delivers, including:

  • Functionality for traffic segregation
  • Resource flexibility
  • Controlled resource sharing
  • Topology control
  • Protection against unauthorized access
