When you're thinking about designing a San, there are many important things that you need to consider before you jump right into it. For starters, you need to how the components fit together in order to choose a San design that will work for you. Like most storage managers, you'll want to design your San to fit today's storage needs as well as tomorrow's increased storage capacity. Aside from being scalable, the ideal San should also be designed for resiliency and high availability with the least amount of latency. Chapter 5 covers all these important design aspects and walks you through the process of creating a template design. In addition, Christopher Poelker also shares some tips from his experiences with building Sans as well as best practices he's learned along the way.

What you'll walk away with:
** In-depth knowledge of how to create an effective San design to meet your needs
** How to design a San for scalability and high availability
** When to use world wide name zoning and when to use port zoning
