A comprehensive introduction to storage networking technologies.
  • Learn fundamental storage concepts with this definitive guide from Cisco Press
  • Understand storage devices and subsystems, redundancy methods, management applications, and filing methods, including storage for database installations
  • View Storage Area Network (SAN) technologies from an independent industry expert's perspective
Storage Networking Fundamentals: An Introduction to Storage Devices, Subsystems, Applications, Management, and File Systems describes the fundamental storage technologies used in networked storage. Readers can use it as a reference, learning the storage technologies and methods, as well as a comprehensive, linear introduction to storage technologies. Storage networking has become an important solution for Cisco Systems and should place this title in high demand with users of Cisco network equipment. The book is separated into five parts, starting with an overview of the entire storage network landscape and moving through parts on storage devices and subsystems, redundancy methods, management applications, and filing methods. Unlike networking technology, where there is already a great deal of literature available, many professionals still need to understand the basic building blocks of storage networking. This book fills that void by providing vendor-neutral, independent analysis and terminology. Marc Farley is the President of Building Storage, Inc., a company that provides consulting and educational services to the network storage and financial services industries. He is the author of Building Storage Networks (McGraw-Hill) and is an on-line expert for the SearchStorage, the network storage web portal site. Marc resides in San Jose, CA.
