How to hire a great freelance SAN Engineer

A Storage Area Network, or SAN, represents a group of computers and various storage devices, which have the task to store and protect your data. A Storage Area Network uses two types of protocols to change the location of the data over a network and store them on disk drives or in blocks. This network of storage devices is usually not accessible to other devices through the Local Area Network (LAN). Additionally, Storage Area Networks are usually used to upgrade storage devices like optical jukeboxes, disk arrays or tape libraries. The devices of Storage Area network are usually connected closely in a room, but to make things better, they can also be connected over long distances. This is particularly important and useful if you want to have this kind of network in a large company.
What Are The Benefits of SAN?
There are so many benefits of using this way of storing your data, so take a look at the list below:
Flexibility, since there is no need to move the storage devices and plug or unplug their cables
Booting the servers from the SAN itself, which can make easier to replace the one that don’t work well
An efficient recovery process, because a Storage Area Network can reach distant location with a secondary storage
What Are The Networks a SAN Can Use?
ATA over Ethernet (AoE), mapping of ATA over Ethernet
HyperSCSI, mapping of SCSI over Ethernet
ESCON over Fibre Channel (FICON)
iFCP[4] or SANoIP[5] mapping of FCP over IP
iSCSI, mapping of SCSI over TCP/IP
iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER)
Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP), the most prominent one, is a mapping of SCSI over Fibre Channel
Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
If you hire a Storage Area Network expert, here are some of the tasks that can be done:
Deploying the servers
Picking right ISP to host the servers
Helping with Yearly Maintenance
Helping with Datacenter Cost
