Organizations today need to manage a staggering amount of data. In many businesses, data volumes are growing by more than 100 percent per year. Data is the lifeblood of business. Consequently, reliable data protection and effective disaster recovery are among the most important challenges facing organizations today. Equally important is the ability to keep data online and continuously available. Continuous availability is usually accomplished through the use of redundant server and storage components, such as clustered application servers and Storage Area Networks (SAN). SANs capable of High Availability (HA) eliminate single points of failure and help ensure that resources are online and available to any server, regardless of their location on the network.
