IP SAN is being considered as a definitive answer for the storage networking needs, by the IT sector. Traditional Fibre Channel SAN has a new additional qualification to it, as it also works on the TCP/IP rather than the typical FC. With this availability, the beauty of IP SAN gets increased, as it turns omnipresent via internet for gaining the benefits of IP SAN, without the need for a physical SAN infrastructure.
Factually speaking, there will be a common platform, for the hardware terms in the SAN structure. The difference lies in the vendors providing the most advanced software management tools, which have greater value with regards to their management skills.
