SANs enable companies to manage accelerating amounts of data far more effectively, but their reputation for complexity has deterred many companies from deploying them. Now, there's a readable, up-to-the-minute guidebook designed to help business and IT professionals understand SAN technology, make intelligent decisions, and derive maximum business advantage from SANs—starting right now.

Storage has never been more critical to your success—and by 2005 it may account for up to 70% of your IT budget. No storage technology offers more promise than SANs. Now's the time to understand them, and this is the book: The Essential Guide to Storage Area Networks.
