Information management is an important area to concentrate for the business continuity of an organization. Organization should have a plan to store, retrieve and maintain its valuable information to meet the business demands. Storage Area Network (SAN) is a high performance network available to meet the enterprise storage solution. Since, SAN uses Fibre Channel (FC) as a transporting medium, it is considered to be fast, reliable and an optimum solution to handle the explosive growth of digital…

A cost-effective, high-bandwidth storage architecture
TLDR
Measurements of the prototype NASD system show that these services can be cost-effectively integrated into a next generation disk drive ASK, and show scaluble bandwidth for NASD-specialized filesystems.
A Framework for Evaluating Storage System Security
TLDR
This paper uses a trace from a time-sharing UNIX server used by a medium-sized workgroup to quantify the costs associated with each of the secure storage systems, and shows that encrypt-on-disk systems offer both increased security and improved performance over encrypt- on-wire in the traced environment.
