Paper Abstract

Currently the mainstream technology of SAN is SAN storage virtualization and its implementation. The switch-based storage virtualization embeds the virtualizer in the core of the storage networking fabric in an "intelligent switch" rather than an appliance or a host. This paper describes the SV-FC SAN switch's hardware and software architecture. The main aid of design and implementation the switch is to give a new way to realize FC-SAN storage virtualization. Storage virtualization modules are embedded in the switches firmware. The switch can provide simple and friendly interfaces for users to configure and manage the FC SAN.
