Global Storage Area Network (SAN) Market - Overview

Storage area network is a high performance, high speed, secured, data transfer network which connects storage devices like disk arrays, tape libraries to the server and offers access to consolidated block level storage. Storage area network basically combines the computational and the shared storage and eliminate the requirement of a separate storage.  Storage area network can support a very high speed data transfer. For example, Fiber channel – a high speed network technology – used to connect computer data storage at the retrieval rate of 5Gbps. Storage to storage data transfer can also be done with no server intervention which helps in minimizing external load of the server. One of the major benefits of using storage area network is centralized backup. In centralized backup servers, user have backup in the main server and can view stored data on local disks. Some of the other features of storage area networks are storage virtualization and dynamic failover protection. Moreover, easy availability and increase in I/O performance with increase in number of interconnected devices make server service area network an efficient system.
