Short description With the rapid increase in data storage requirements in the last decade, efficient management of stored data becomes a necessity for the enterprise. Most financial, insurance, healthcare, and telecommunications institutions are in the process of implementing storage networks that are distributed to some degree. The worldwide market for SAN (Storage Area Network)and NAS (Network Attached Storage)is anticipated to grow from US $2 billion in 1999 to over $25 billion by 2004. This book addresses the "terminology gap" between enterprise network planners and telecommunications engineers, who must understand the transport requirements of storage networks in order to implement distributed storage networks.
