What is SAN Storage?
SAN storage definition
SAN (storage area network) storage is a network of block storage devices that can be accessed by multiple users. Using SAN storage, storage devices can be made local, improving performance and expanding storage utilization rates (because storage is no longer dependent on individual devices).
Why SAN storage?
SAN storage is useful when several people need to connect to multiple storage devices at once. It creates a network of devices that may have otherwise been completely disconnected from one another, and it somewhat solves the issue of storage utilization rates with block storage devices.
