Storage Area Networks (SAN) for Essex Business

A storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to consolidated, data storage, SANS are primarily used to enhance storage devices, such as disk arrays, tape libraries, and optical jukeboxes, accessible to servers so that the devices appear like locally attached devices to the operating system

  • Better performance , Storage devices are dedicated to storing information, leaving the servers within a network to be used solely to process information and applications.
  • Speed of access , Storage area networks are designed for one purpose - to provide storage and fast access to this data.
  • Ease of access , If there are server issues or if maintenance is being carried out on the server, staff can still access critical data on the SAN, independently of the network.
  • Data availability , Because data can be replicated easily, if a server fails, the data will still be available to users.
  • Data management , Monitoring tools can automatically find and fix any faults without the need for technical staff, Some can even alert the support department that there is a problem.
  • Maximise assets , A SAN can include both disk and tape so it maximises existing technologies and assets.
  • Disaster recovery , Critical information stored on an organisation's computer system can be copied in real-time to another storage system located at another building , Users can still access information within minutes rather than hours or days.
