A Storage Area Network (SAN) is a specialized, high-speed network that provides block-level network access to storage. SANs are typically composed of hosts, switches, storage elements, and storage devices that are interconnected using a variety of technologies, topologies, and protocols.
A storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated, independent high-speed network that interconnects and delivers shared pools of storage devices to multiple servers. Each server can access shared storage as if it were a drive directly attached to the server.
In informatica e telecomunicazioni una Storage Area Network (SAN) è una rete o parte di una rete ad alta velocità di trasmissione (generalmente Giga bit/sec) costituita esclusivamente da dispositivi di memorizzazione di massa, in alcuni casi anche di tipi e tecnologie differenti.
Als Storage-Area-Network (SAN) bzw.Speichernetzwerk bezeichnet man im Bereich der Datenverarbeitung ein Netzwerk zur Anbindung von Festplattensubsystemen (Disk-Array) und Tape-Libraries an Server-Systeme.
Storage area network solutions SAN b-type enterprise switches and directors The IBM b-type family is the modern storage network infrastructure for mission-critical storage for a self-learning, self-optimizing, and self-healing autonomous SAN.
Facilis HUB storage area network servers are not generic NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices that rely on standard network protocols that can be changed or broken. Our Shared File System for video editing is unique in many ways: Automatic multi-connectivity failover (including Fibre Channel to Ethernet) with no manual configuration required.
DAS consists of one or more storage units such as hard drives, solid-state drives, optical disc drives within an external enclosure. The name "DAS" is a retronym to contrast with storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS).
