A storage protocol will be used that is transported on top of an industry-standard Ethernet protocol layer. For instance, a serial SCSI protocol could either replace IP in the protocol stack or be transported by IP or TCP services. In general, this type of approach would not work with any nonswitched, sub-100 Mb/s Ethernet network. There are significant differences between storage network requirements and those of TCP/IP data networks, but that does not mean that Ethernet technology could not be developed that meets the needs of storage networks.
Chapter 1: Getting a Handle on Storage Networking A single wiring technology can carry both filing (NFS and CIFS) traffic and serial SCSI storing traffic. Both Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet have the capability to transport NFS and CIFS on top of the TCP/IP protocol stack as well as transporting serial SCSI protocols. In this way, a single network wiring technology can connect all kinds of storage network traffic, including client server NAS as storage devices and subsystems. Figure 1-10 shows both types of traffic working together in a single multiprotocol SAN.
This distinction between the computer and the data it processes, illustrated here, is germane to the subject of this book. As data is increasingly thought of as its own free-existing entity, not necessarily belonging to any particular system, it is also being viewed as a corporate asset, similar to capital or intellectual property that needs to be preserved and protected. Likewise, stor- Chapter 1: Getting a Handle on Storage Networking age networking products and architectures, as platforms for data protection and storage management, are also being elevated as a strategic asset worthy of planning and budget meetings formerly reserved for systems and software.
