Abstract: 

This presentation, an update to a very popular SNIA Tutorial, outlines the benefits of networked storage, contrasting the different options. It then goes into detail on iSCSI-based SAN configurations, capabilities, options and best practices, including contemporary iSCSI storage features. The presentation explains via customer case studies how these capabilities deliver distinct benefits to IT organizations. Finally, emerging and future technologies and capabilities are considered, including 10Gb Ethernet.

This session will appeal to IT managers, administrators and architects interested in best practices and deployment considerations of storage consolidation solutions available with IP Storage technologies today.
