LUN management is the process of assigning, provisioning and overseeing logical unit numbers (LUNs) across a storage environment.

LUN management is the process of assigning, provisioning and overseeing logical unit numbers (LUNs) across a storage environment.

LUN management is a standard feature in storage management software. Since an enterprise storage array may host more than 10,000 LUNs, it is important for administrators to be able to efficiently create and manipulate LUNs.  Masking and zoning, are key features of logical unit number management. 

LUN management tools can be vendor- or product-specific, or heterogeneous, allowing LUNs to be managed across all storage platforms. Some  LUN management tools are able to reclaim storage that is no longer needed and provide administrators with reporting capabilities.
