IP SAN storage benefits

IP SAN is a native end-to-end storage solution over IP, providing benefits by way of:

  • low acquisition costs
  • commodity economics
  • utilizing a proven technology installed at almost every business site
  • wide area connectivity - no interconnect distance limit

The benefits of SAN, which many businesses have known about for years now, have yet to be realized by many smaller and medium businesses, Many just don't have the budget or resources to pay for or justify the cost of a Fibre channel SAN. When purchasing a Fibre channel SAN, in most cases, you need:

  • a Fibre channel network - that means cabling, Fibre switches, Fibre hubs, Fibre cards, and HBAs (Host Bus Adapters)
  • a Fibre channel expert - your network professional may know all about Cisco and TCP/IP, but Fibre channel is an entirely different protocol, and requires extensive training, and in most cases, an additional member of your IT staff to handle your Fibre channel network

IP SAN lowers the budget and staffing requirements it used to take, to install, implement, and manage a SAN. You can utilize your existing LAN, WAN, or MAN for your IP-based storage area network. IP SANs are also easy to manage, utilizing familiar technologies & protocols like SCSI and TCP/IP.

IP SAN & iSCSI are continually improving, especially since the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) approved the iSCSI protocol. IP networking already boasts a large R&D profile, with an established roadmap that has 10Gbps emerging now, on the way to 40Gbps.
