a Non Techie recommendation for this Storage book

I've purchased the German Version "Speichernetze" last year to get a better understanding, the recent purchase of "Storage Networks Explained" is just to read the book in english. I can recommend Storage Notweorks explained to anyone interested in the basics of Fibre Channel, NAS, SAN, Infiniband, iSCSI and FCoE. I'm a Sales Guy with a some technical knopwledge and I really appreciate this book because it is easy to read and has all the stuff in it I currently need and it comes with a SNIA recomendation too.

SAN explained

i entered into the arena of Storage in early 2007, though i used to work on hard drives & tape since 2001, SAN was something new to me. I was looking out for a book which could be self explanatory and be easier to understand. Stoage Networks explained is a very handy book for me because it explains the concepts of SAN beautifully and very importantly its simpler to understand. I beleive that every penny i invested in it is worth it, cause in my currency it costed me about 6000 Rupees. In return I stood first in my training batch and i knew where the inspiration came from. Thank you Troppens,Muller and Erkens for making my life and job simpler.

Best storage book in the market

Overall, this is the best storage book that you ever read .

Good overview of storage networking

This is one of the best books I've encountered in many years. What I like about it: - Describes everything (using illustration) from file-systems and volume managers down to transport concepts like fibre channel, iSCSI, infiniband, VI - Goes into concepts like mirroring, snapshots and other technologies in an easy to relate manner. Despite the relatively high price, I give this book an A and would heartily recommend it. However this book is not for programmers or those intending to design things. Neither is it for sales/marketing folks who just want to know key buzzwords. Its more for technologists, CTOs and others interested in how things work with regards storage networking.

Succinct overview of Storage Networks

A very good translation of the german text. There are a few areas where the translation falters but overall excellent. This is not an implementation book. It's meant to be a general overview of the Storage Network universe. The authors focus on Fibre Channel SAN which is still dominant in large corporations and gaining popularity among mid level companies. The book does a good job of explaining the plus/minus of all the competing standards as well as giving an infrastructure map of each of the technology setups. If you want to understand the ABCs of Storage, your journey should start with this book.
