A storage area network (SAN) is a network which provides access to consolidated, block level data storage. SANs are primarily used to enhance storage devices, such as disk arrays, tape libraries, and optical jukeboxes, accessible to servers so that the devices appear to the operating system as locally attached devices.
A SAN typically has its own network of storage devices that are generally not accessible through the local area network (LAN) by other devices. The cost and complexity of SANs dropped in the early 2000s to levels allowing wider adoption across both enterprise and small to medium-sized business environments.
A SAN does not provide file abstraction, only block-level operations. However, file systems built on top of SANs do provide file-level access, and are known as shared-disk file systems.
SANs also tend to enable more effective disaster recovery processes. A SAN could span a distant location containing a secondary storage array.
This enables storage replication either implemented by disk array controllers, by server software, or by specialized SAN devices.
SANs often use a Fibre Channel fabric topology, an infrastructure specially designed to handle storage communications. It provides faster and more reliable access than higher-level protocols used in NAS.
