More about "Lesson 12: Approaches to SAN management"

Lets face it -- managing complex SANs is tough. Even creating a topology of your environments is a challenge. In Lesson 12 of "SearchStorage.com's "SAN School" professor Alex Nikitin shows you how to think about approaching SAN management from a systems level as opposed to a component level. He'll discuss what a solid SAN framework will give you, and how you can match up your management process with the goals of the business unit. Lesson 12 also covers  the merits of automation.

What you'll walk away with:
** Understanding the need for SAN management practices
** Using a "framework" of software to handle it all
** What does a good SAN management framework do for you?
** Automating SAN management tasks
