Abstract

Storage can be an extensive topic, but the storage paradigm for the Mac platform is unique—there are far fewer options than with other environments, which helps to constrain the conversation. It’s not that you can’t use most enterprise-class storage systems, it’s just that you won’t find the proliferation of storage types, file systems, and storage-access protocols that you will with, say, Windows. Still, OS X supports iSCSI and Fibre Channel (FC, which we’ll discuss when we get to Xsan SAN systems) as well as numerous network access protocols—client and server—that run over Ethernet: Apple Filing Protocol (AFP), Network File System (NFS), and Server Message Block/Common Internet File System (SMB/CIFS).
