In recent years, with the further development of the information technology , as well as large-scale application of the network , bringing the explosive growth of data has brought great opportunities for development , but also to network storage . Today's storage systems has been formed from a simple direct-attached storage to complex networked storage from a single storage device to multiple storage devices multi-level , complex storage system . Changes to the storage system storage management brought about a qualitative change, and how to effectively manage the entire storage network system to provide users with flexible storage services , while ensuring the security and availability of data , these are the urgent problems of storage management . For two typical network storage system : network-attached storage and storage area network , based on the analysis of the structure and characteristics of the system , to explore the storage management system . Network-attached storage system , commonly used web-based remote management system , the administrator via a web browser and the host interact to complete the management of the system . Use dynamic pages interactively , the establishment of a network-attached storage management system based on the Linux platform . Mainly to complete multiple levels of disk array management, network file sharing and user management and data backup and recovery , the actual running well . Analysis of storage management technology trends seen for storage area networks , storage area network management system from the management of the infrastructure should be extended to a higher level of storage management - storage area management . Storage area management is the centralized management of the entire storage domain resources and data to shared storage to multiple servers and their applications . By using the standard application program interface , the formation of a Fibre Channel-based storage area network management system , to achieve the basic management functions .
