Professional IT certification and training

I would like to study storage networking. What is the best way for me to study this particular subject? Also, is there any certification I can study for to really challenge myself.

Probably the best place to start is to sign up for a training class from one of the switch vendors. That will give you the basics on the protocols and how everything fits together.

The next step would be to go for the SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) SAN certification, since it is hardware agnostic and recognized by the entire industry.

You can always get yourself a copy of my book "Storage Area Networks for Dummies" at your local book store or online at Barnes and Noble or The book takes you through just about everything you need to know but in plain English.
