The storage area network (SAN) infrastructure facilitates storage consolidation, data sharing, serverclustering, LAN-free and server-less backup across heterogeneous host server platforms. This coursefocuses on the planning and implementation considerations associated with establishing that SANinfrastructure. Functions provided by SAN fabric components, such as Fibre Channel host bus adapters(HBAs), Fibre Channel switches and directors, and SCSI to Fibre Channel protocol converters are discussed,and the interdependencies of these components are examined. Mechanisms to implement resource accesscontrol for data access integrity among heterogeneous hosts in a storage networking environment are alsoexamined.If you are enrolling in a Self Paced Virtual Classroom or Web Based Training course, before you enroll, pleasereview the Self-Paced Virtual Classes and Web-Based Training Classes on our Terms and Conditions page,as well as the system requirements, to ensure that your system meets the minimum requirements for thiscourse.
