The Random Acronym Seminar (or RAS for short...)
James Morle, Scale Abilities, Ltd.
This paper talks about storage within SANs. It is easier than ever to implement a badly laid out SAN, with the levels of abstraction and data sharing made possible through this technology. We will look at ways this can be simplified though careful planning, and discover why its a good idea to lie to your boss. Before that, though, it's worthwhile taking a journey into the past to find out why all this stuff exists, and why there are so many acronyms in the storage industry.
