A poor book
The book is weak on specifics, and inundated with
meaningless statements. Very few schemes and graphs
and setups,of systems, and many generalized devoid of
understanding lines. This is a useless book.
Rating: 5 out of 5
a comprehensive look at storage area networks
This comprehensive guide covers everything about storage area networks from installation to the latest standards. Different types of SAN technology and implementation plans are not forgotten. This is a very thorough discussion of storage area networks.

not very technical, and mostly low level when it is
This book will tell you about Brocade's stock price and EMC's corporate culture, and about computer forensics' need of SAN storage, and about FC-AL, but if you need to know the different scalability characteristics of GFS versus StorageTank for your SAN file system, this is the wrong book. I do like the fact that VAXclusters get mentioned; too many books think SAN means Fibre Channel only. "IDE" in this context means "integrated drive electronics", NOT "integrated development environment". Overall, I think the lack of information on how you turn a pile of hardware into a working system is a big drawback.
