Free PDF download provides introduction to the fundamentals of storage technologies and storage networks

Munich, Do you know your SAN from your NAS? How does iSCSI compare to FC? How close is your near-line storage and what does a VTA do? The answers to all these storage-related questions, and more, can be found in a new book published by Fujitsu Siemens Computers, entitled Storage Basics.

Getting to grips with the ever-growing flood of data is still the greatest challenge faced by most organizations with regard to information storage. This applies not only to large companies and their data centers, but also has a business-critical impact on small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Intended to provide a clear, easy-to-read path through the storage jungle, Fujitsu Siemens Computers has published a new book, Storage Basics.

Storage Basics features valuable information from experts on a comprehensive set of storage-related topics such as disk-based online storage, and tape technology. It explains why backup and restore is a necessary chore, outlines how proper data management can ease the burden of managing storage networks, and reveals the differences between a Storage Area Network (SAN) and Network-Attached Storage (NAS).

Additionally, the Storage Basics book covers future storage trends, and explains the hype around the current buzz, storage virtualization. The book is also a pocket-size guide to the storage technologies offered by Fujitsu Siemens Computers and its partners from single LTO tape drives and tapes through to the top-of-the-range CentricStor VT solution.

Storage Basics is available free-of-charge as a PDF download from the Fujitsu Siemens Computers website at:
