Storage networking, also known as storage area network, is a network used to provide access to a secured, block level data storage. These networks are used to enhance the capacity of mass storage devices (tape libraries, optical jukeboxes and disk arrays) that have access to servers. Storage networking ensures that these storage devices appear as locally attached drives to any operating system. It links all storage devices together in any network and connects them to different operating systems in other IT networks.
