Publisher Comments:

***** “Read this book before implementing a Storage Area Network Understanding the theory behind the Fibre Channel protocol is necessary before deploying a SAN into your infrastructure … Considering how technical the subject is, I found this book incredibly easy to understand … definitely recommended reading for any System Administrator looking to stay in demand.”--a reader at Amazon.com, on the author’s earlier Fibre ChannelFibre Channel is a high-performance interconnect standard capable of transporting huge amounts of traffic among desktop workstations, mass storage subsystems, peripherals, and host systems at speeds 10 to 250 times faster than typical LANs. Briefly eclipsed by Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel has come into its own again as the defining network architecture for Storage Area Networks (SANs), which are proving critical for managing the volume and complexity of data generated by Internet-era applications. Design and Deploy a SAN with Step-by-Step GuidanceWritten by a leading authority on the high-performance Fibre Channel ANSI standard, Fibre Channel author Dr Alan F. Benner, this new guide gives you both an easy-to-understand overview and a practical roadmap for SAN design and deployment. Fibre Channel for SANs-:*Shows you how Fibre Channel works, how it integrates with other protocols and systems, and how to implement it to create a SAN for fast access to mass storage*Helps you build expertise in the standard used by ISPs for Web page storage, and by enterprise data centers for managing multi-Terabyte storage requirements*Explains how to create bandwidth-sparing solutions for multimedia—voice, video, animation, music—and real-time video conferencing*Walks you through the ANSI standard’s 5 levels, from the physical transmission level through interfaces to upper layer protocols*Provides clear directions on implementing logins and logouts, link services, error detection and recovery, flow control, and more*Demonstrates mapping SCSI and IP over Fibre Channel*Offers a wealth of timesaving illustrations*Provides practical suggestions for troubleshooting Fibre Channel networksThe Best Guide to Applying Fibre Channel—For a Bigger, Better, Faster, More Capable Data Network

Synopsis:

A tutorial overview of fibre channel a high-performance interconnect standard.

Synopsis:

This book offers an accessible, tutorial overview of how to use and deploy fibre channel. Following the standard's 5 layer architecture, the book provides guidance on the ANSI standard, the physical transmission level, and interfaces to IP and SCSI. But motivating the entire discussion is how to use the standard in deploying storage networks, accessing mass storage, and creating local area networks capable of handling huge streams of video and media.
