what I know is every storage operation has best practices......but I have no documentation which gives the best practices...these best practices are generally provided by the vendors (EMC,Netapp etc.......).....anyone if you have those best practices pls tell me I will PM my email address

Hi all,
My First doubt,
SAN day to day management tasks emi untayi ?
[/quote]

storage ante SAN and NAS. First and foremost, SAN and NAS ki difference thelusukovali.....

coming to your question, day to day tasks are storage provisioning, taking backups (depends on environment, in some environments there will be a separate team for backup and in some environments storage team takes care of backups), restore, replication (duplicating data to DR site) and list goes on.....most common task is storage provisioning.
