"An introduction to network-attached storage and storage area networks"
"It seems that RAID isn't enough to satisfy the growing corporate need for storage accessibility and reliability. RAID, which began in SCSI-based systems, is now being used in other disk protocol systems such as Fibre Channel as well. This breaks the limitations imposed by SCSI on both number of physical drive units and distance separation. Furthermore, vendors have found ways to take storage directly to the network with systems like network-attached storage and storage area networks. Rawn follows up last month's column about RAID storage technology with this look at some of the newer technologies and storage systems available for your network."
