Storage area networks (SANs) are constantly in the need for fail-proof, high-performance centers where a large amount of data exchange is the only constant. Several technology advances are pushing up SAN bandwidth demands, including application growth, server virtualization, multi-core processors, PCI Express 3.0, increased memory, and solid state disks (SSDs). The amount of information that is managed, shared, and protected continues to grow. The industry is waking up to the importance of virtualizing data centers and bringing together a converged infrastructure to orchestrate their IT setups. The need for a quicker data exchange has never been more necessary than right now. This paper discusses these industry-transforming dynamics from an industry perspective, and explains how new interfaces allow for faster technology and quicker data transfers at minimal costs.
