The purpose of this chapter is to give you a tour of the Storage Area Network products on the market. Of course, specific model numbers, product characteristics, and attributes will likely have changed by the time you read this chapter. For this reason, I’ve tried to look at the history and strategy of the major players, all the better to round out the book. However, since I intended this book as a bottom-up primer for anyone addressing Storage Area Networks in theory and practice, I also added a specific requirement that was presented to me for a storage networking solution, and I relate those requirements to the specific product set I recommended in that case.
