    10. Enterprises increase their storage of data in network about 75%. This leads to develop comprehensive strategies designed to optimize network infrastructure with storage that will enable scalability, reliability, performance, availability, manageability and affordability

    12. High Performance =>Fiber channel provide a switched more than than 2000MB/sec bandwidth with full duplex interconnect and low overhead, and it separates storage and network I/O. Manageability => No special hardware or software required Availability => One copy of every piece of data is always accessible to any and all hosts via multiple paths. Scalability => Fiber Channel networks allow the number of attached nodes to increase without loss of performance because as switches are added Reliability => Dependable data transportation ensures a low error rate and fault tolerance

    13. SAN has the ability to access any device on the network, SAN also act as boot devices which allow quick and easy replacement of faulty server hardware. In SAN data store in multiple systems, this ensure data guarantee. Copper based iSCSI storage improve the economics of the technology.

    14. Since SAN has high performance, manageability, reliability and scalability, it will be a wise decision to implement SAN in companies. SAN eliminates the traditional dedicated connection between a server and storage.
