SAN Storage provides reliable storage on a Storage Area Network (SAN) for virtual machines living in DTS’ private cloud (on premise hosting environment).s. Redundancy is built into the SAN to provide protection for the data from equipment failure. Storage is presented within VMWare.. With the assistance of the storage administrator and system administrators, the customer specifies the number and the size of each virtual disk. Virtual disks can be configured up to 2TB. Connectivity to this storage is provided through high-speed Fibre Channel networks via host bus adapters (HBA) and is suitable for mission critical applications.
