Scalability has always been an important characteristic of enterprise storage systems, maybe the most important, since the rationale of consolidating storage assumes that the system can easily grow with aggregate demand.

Storage area networks (SAN) deliver consolidated storage and advanced storage management features. One advanced SAN configuration involves booting servers directly from the SAN, eliminating all locally attached storage, and improving server operations. Several server boot options are available. To select the right boot option for your environment, you should weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each.

Most storage devices support multiple SAN connections for performance and reliability, but in many configurations servers use only a single storage connection. This creates a single point of failure and potential performance bottleneck for I/O. Multipath Input/Output (MPIO) is server software that extends redundancy to the entire I/O pathway in a SAN, delivering fault tolerance, high availability, and better performance.

System reliability is a vital component in Storage Area Network (SAN) design that keeps your production environment operating and avoids data loss and downtime. But since SANs are built using both mechanical and electronic parts, component failures due to usage, environmental factors, or manufacturing defects are not uncommon. Even in completely redundant systems, controllers can fail, fans can stop operating, power supplies can burn out, and disk drives can degrade or fail.

Call it growth, scaling, or expansion – whatever you call it, increasing your storage resources often strikes fear and loathing in the heart of the IT administrator. It conjures up visions of downtime, extra management tasks, frustrated users, and working nights and weekends. In addition, since capacity and performance are intimately connected, increasing storage resources can require balancing changes that affects the entire the SAN.

Storage consolidation was a launching point for various new technologies delivering advanced functionality. The next generational shift that is in process will free storage administrators from handling storage provisioning for applications – instead, applications will be able to request and provision storage for themselves. While today multiple tools are required to add storage to your database, soon the database will be able to take care of that itself.

IP storage using Internet SCSI (iSCSI) provides opportunity for many organizations looking to extend existing Fibre Channel SANs to stranded servers, or looking to deploy Ethernet-based SANs. It can reduce costs by allowing IT managers to take advantage of existing, familiar Ethernet networks. Often the biggest complaint white new technology like iSCSI is its ability to provide more than simple functionality and connectivity.

"Storage consolidation" is a term that has typically meant the consolidation of direct attached storage to a storage network, whether it is Network Attached Storage (NAS) or Storage Area Network (SAN). Consolidation has usually been undertaken to improve utilization of assets, lower the total cost of ownership (TCO), increase return on capital investment, improve IT operational efficiency and increase service levels.

Storage spawns where it is needed. This leaves IT to manage many islands of storage devices scattered across the enterprise. Compliance requirements, multimedia-rich applications, unstructured content and a proliferation of databases are pushing IT departments to increase the size and complexity of their storage networks. All of this is occurring at a time when the need for centralized storage management has never been greater.
