46CQ Exploring the Mystery of Fibre Channel SAN Zoning: A Beginner's Guide

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Power Systems professionals are increasingly being exposed to storage area network (SAN) devices. Be it disk or tape, in our highly virtualized world, these are concepts we all must understand at some level. How these SAN components communicate, and how they are addressed through zoning is a critical piece of the puzzle.

In this session, we'll explore the basic concepts of fibre channel SAN connectivity and how to zone devices so they can communicate, including how to segment zones in a mixed IBM i / AIX / VMware world.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss hardware components of a fibre channel SAN, and how each one participates in the network

  • Discuss the interaction between VIOS, AIX and IBM i with the SAN

  • Explore the basics of how to create SAN zones, how they are applied and how they control access to SAN devices including in mixed OS environments
