Storage Area Networks

A Storage Area Network (SAN) is a network designed to attach computer storage devices such as disk array controllers and tape libraries to servers. As of 2006, SANs are most commonly found in enterprise storage. A SAN allows a machine to connect to remote targets such as disks and tape drives on a network for block level I/O.

The purpose of deduplication is to provide more storage, particularly backup storage, for less money, right? Then wouldn't it be ridiculous if deduplication vendors were demanding that their customers pay more per terabyte of storage? Or if they were simply pushing the task of integrating, monitoring, and managing deduplication back onto their users?

Backup, despite the breathless hyperbole of many in the industry, is simply a form of insurance. What's important about your backup strategy is getting your systems and data protected in the most effective and affordable manner possible. Speaking plainly - you must be careful that you are in control of your backup strategy rather than your backup strategy (and vendor) being in control of you.
