"Storage consolidation" is a term that has typically meant the consolidation of direct attached storage to a storage network, whether it is Network Attached Storage (NAS) or Storage Area Network (SAN). Consolidation has usually been undertaken to improve utilization of assets, lower the total cost of ownership (TCO), increase return on capital investment, improve IT operational efficiency and increase service levels.

System reliability is a vital component in Storage Area Network (SAN) design that keeps your production environment operating and avoids data loss and downtime. But since SANs are built using both mechanical and electronic parts, component failures due to usage, environmental factors, or manufacturing defects are not uncommon. Even in completely redundant systems, controllers can fail, fans can stop operating, power supplies can burn out, and disk drives can degrade or fail.

IP storage using Internet SCSI (iSCSI) provides opportunity for many organizations looking to extend existing Fibre Channel SANs to stranded servers, or looking to deploy Ethernet-based SANs. It can reduce costs by allowing IT managers to take advantage of existing, familiar Ethernet networks. Often the biggest complaint white new technology like iSCSI is its ability to provide more than simple functionality and connectivity.

"Time is money. You can't do business if you can't access your applications. I won't settle for anything less than 99.99% application availability." Steven Sommer, veteran CIO/CTO There is no aspect more critical to a business than the ability of its end users, customers, business partners and suppliers to have high availability access the corporate applications. If applications are unavailable, business ceases. And corporations know it.

Mid-sized organizations have similar issues to large organizations when it comes to the storage and management of information and data, yet they often have limited capability to attract, retain and maintain the skills that large organizations will use in managing their data assets.  There is a strong need for more effective tools that will enable mid-sized organizations to manage their data assets and gain the greatest value from them.

The growth of structured data from databases, e-mail and other applications has been exponential. The increasing flood of data can lead to a host of problems — failing to recognize that data storage must be managed as a critical resource often results in a very difficult environment to manage, a higher cost of ownership, less responsiveness to change and added risk to the business. This white paper discusses how a dedicated, optimized network storage solution can increase data availability and reduce operating costs by simplifying management and improving capacity utilization.

Call it growth, scaling, or expansion – whatever you call it, increasing your storage resources often strikes fear and loathing in the heart of the IT administrator. It conjures up visions of downtime, extra management tasks, frustrated users, and working nights and weekends. In addition, since capacity and performance are intimately connected, increasing storage resources can require balancing changes that affects the entire the SAN.

Storage area networks (SAN) deliver consolidated storage and advanced storage management features. One advanced SAN configuration involves booting servers directly from the SAN, eliminating all locally attached storage, and improving server operations. Several server boot options are available. To select the right boot option for your environment, you should weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each.
