152 Messaging Solutions in a Linux Environment
5.1 Scenario three overview
This scenario expands on scenario two by showing the improvements that can
be made by replacing the external SCSI enclosure with a low-end SAN, a
FASTt200 disk enclosure. Highly scalable and fast, these SANs can be
configured to provide hundreds of terabytes of shared storage, but at a much
greater cost than in scenario two. The hardware topology used in this scenario
will be almost the same as in scenario two, see Figure 4-1 on page 122. The only
difference is the SAN switch in Figure 5-1.
