Like a local area network (LAN) using Internet Protocol (IP), a SAN island consists of all the servers, switches, and storage that are physically connected in one location. Some SAN islands are isolated within the same building on different floors or in different departments. Each small SAN might currently be used for different applications or perhaps be used by separate business units within a company.

Individual smaller SANs are connected to form a larger SAN to share and copy data.
