Upon completing this chapter, you will be able to
Identify the major architectural components used in a storage subsystem
Participate in discussions with coworkers, vendors, and analysts about the strengths and weaknesses of designs used in storage subsystems
Analyze the functions and features provided by a storage subsystem, including its capabilities for high-availability environments
Participate in planning exercises concerning the connections used between systems and storage subsystems
Storage networks tend to be designed using storage-centric architectures. Obviously, the storage at the core of such designs should be flexible, scalable, and robust. In most storage networks this is accomplished by implementing ...
