 AN!Wiki :: SAN

SAN is an acronym for Storage Area Network. It differs from NAS in that it makes it's disk space available to multiple servers at the block level. It generally uses many disk drives in an array using high-speed copper or fiber networking technologies and is generally fault tolerant.
