Storage area networks (SAN) deliver consolidated storage and advanced storage management features. One advanced SAN configuration involves booting servers directly from the SAN, eliminating all locally attached storage, and improving server operations. Several server boot options are available. To select the right boot option for your environment, you should weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each.
Most storage devices support multiple SAN connections for performance and reliability, but in many configurations servers use only a single storage connection. This creates a single point of failure and potential performance bottleneck for I/O. Multipath Input/Output (MPIO) is server software that extends redundancy to the entire I/O pathway in a SAN, delivering fault tolerance, high availability, and better performance.
