SAN – Storage Area Network

A Storage Area Network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to consolidated and shared storage devices. Its primary function is to make storage devices accessible to servers. A SAN does not provide file abstraction only block-level operations.

Sharing storage simplifies storage administration and adds flexibility since cables and storage devices do not have to be physically moved to shift storage from one server to another. SAN also enables effective disaster recovery processes.
