SANs are now a reality and are becoming an integral part of data centers around the world. Whether you're not sure what a SAN is, or think that SANs are all hype and no reality, this talk has something for you. The talk will start with the basics of SANs, and end with how SANs are being used today in the backup and recovery industry to make the impossible possible - local backups remotely. The talk will include:

Having designed backup systems for environments with small budgets, Curtis has developed a number of freely available tools, including ones that perform live backups of Oracle, Informix, and Sybase. He has ported these tools to a number of environments, including Linux, and they are running at companies around the world. Curtis is now a principal consultant for Collective Technologies, where they have developed a proven system for choosing a commercial backup utility when the environment and budget allow one to be purchased. This system has been used to select commercial backup systems for some of the world's largest environments, including a six terabyte Oracle database and one site with a total storage capacity of five petabytes. Once software and hardware selection is completed, they design and implement a complete system based on the customer's requirements.
