Data Transfer

SAN supports direct, high-speed data transfers between systems and storage devices. The same storage device may be accessed serially or concurrently by multiple systems; SAN may be used for high-speed, high-volume communications between systems; and SAN enables data to be moved without system intervention, thereby freeing system processor cycles for other activities.

Consolidate Data into One Appliance

Data Protection

With Fibre channel capable of running up to 10 kilometers, you can keep your data in a remote, physically secure location. In case of unexpected natural disaster and loss of data, large backup disk arrays can be stored on an off-site location and shared on a SAN where all users can access them remotely.

Storage Utilization

Raw storage is treated as a pool of resources that can be centrally managed and allocated on an as-needed basis. Because SAN removes storage from the servers and consolidates it where it can be accessed by any application, it tends to improve storage utilization.
