Useful SAN Content

The purpose of this article is to help you find the necessary materials for learning storage networks, and is aimed at beginners. Each of us is faced with the fact that when developing a new field, it is necessary to form a basis, a foundation on which subsequent knowledge will be based. It is often not clear where and how to start, what is necessary and what is not. It takes a lot of time to search, the selection of materials that satisfy our needs.
I bring to your attention a selection of useful and accessible materials on data storage networks.
