Great Quotes in August’s Issue of Network Centric Security

So for larger surveillance networks, a storage area network might be the better fit. A SAN is a network of hard disks devoted to storage, analogous to a file cabinet with many files in several drawers, so storage can be shared across devices and users.  This flexibility enables users to partition a SAN so that data from a particular camera or surveillance area is written to a specific area on the SAN, Ervin said. “
