Area Networks (SANs) have become one of the hottest topics
in the data storage industry. This seminar introduces the
Storage Area Network and examines how Fibre Channel has redefined
the storage environment. Beginning with a look at storage
attachment architectures, this two-day seminar continues with
a look at the applications driving SAN adoption and wraps
up with an introduction to the Fibre Channel technology that
makes SANs possible.
