In this chapter, you will learn how to
• Identify the components of a storage architecture
• Implement redundant storage components for high availability
• Explain the functions and types of storage replication
Storage architecture is the description of a storage system’s parts and functions and how they are combined to achieve the storage goal. I have saved this topic until now so that the concepts leading into the architecture could be discussed first, but designing a storage architecture is the first step before implementing a storage system.
Storage Architecture Components
Storage architecture has to do with the way a storage system is designed. The architecture defines how components such as hosts and storage systems ...
