Conference puts SANs in their place

Agency managers looking for ideas on keeping track of all their stored data heard quite a few at a recent conference in Washington on managing storage area networks.
The conference, presented by Veritas Software Corp. of Mountain View, Calif., updated attendees on new developments in SAN management technology.

Samuel J. Coco, senior Unix administrator for the Army Research Laboratory at Adelphi, Md., is always willing to listen to ideas on storage management. With the lab getting a terabyte of new data every night, he said, he's interested in finding ways to borrow computing power from other groups and in developing an enterprisewide backup plan.
