The Fundamentals of Storage Area Networks course provides students with the foundational knowledge necessary to perform essential job responsibilities in a Storage Area Network (SAN) environment. Students learn the architecture and components of a SAN and the technological underpinnings that make SANs work. Students apply these concepts in a series of on-line design activities that employ techniques such as zoning to practice the consolidation of large amounts of data in a secure and highly available environment.

Students who can benefit from this course:
  • Storage Administrators responsible for designing, implementing, or managing storage in a SAN

Skills Gained

  • Differentiate among storage models
  • and describe the benefits of SANs
  • Identify components of a SAN and their roles
  • Differentiate among SAN topologies
  • Identify how to implement security measures in a SAN using zoning
  • Logical Unit Number (LUN) masking
  • and virtualization
  • Define SAN management issues and requirements
  • Define Fibre Channel (FC) protocol and how it is implemented in storage models


  • Describe storage systems, such as storage arrays, and define the specific technologies associated with arrays
  • Define and differentiate between the types of network storage configurations and the types of logical storage configurations
  • Define data services and their application to storage
  • Define storage management software and its application to storage
