Recommended book(s) for storage networking

Hi all,

Coming from a data networking background, I am looking for the best book to get quickly up to speed with the fundamentals of storage networking – fibre channel, FCOE, etc.

Any recommendations?



  • I come from same background. I found the IBM Redbooks the best resource on SAN.  Specifically Redbook: IBM/Cisco Multiprotocol Routing

  • Hi,


    I can recommend you:


    • EMC - Networked Storage Concepts and Protocols
    • IBM - Introduction to Storage Area Networks and System Networking
    • Cisco - Storage Networking Fundamentals: An Introduction to Storage Devices, Subsystems, Applications, Management, and
      Filing Systems


    I think that EMC and IBM books are free.

  • i came from R&S background only. for storgae the only book i used (in addtional to Brain's video) is Cisco - Storage Networking Fundamentals: An Introduction to Storage Devices
