Interoperabilidad SAN

Entre administradores de SAN es conocido el problema que hay con la compatibilidad entre dispositivos de proveedores diferentes. Por ejemplo, cuando se añade una nueva cabina de discos  a una SAN y no funciona el software de multipath en el servidor ya que no estaban en la matriz de interoperabilidad de los fabricantes. Dejaré en este post unas notas relativas a estos problemas.

Definición de Interoperabilidad:

La Interoperabilidad es la condición mediante la cual sistemas heterogéneos pueden intercambiar procesos o datos (Wikipedia ) o la capacidad de los productos de diferentes fabricantes puedan operar conjuntamente (BNET).

En SAN la Interoperabilidad es bastante compleja, cumpliéndose que si toda una red SAN no está en la lista de compatibilidad de hardware/software de los vendedores no operará de la forma esperada. Hace algunos años, el acceder a información de interoperabilidad era un trabajo frustante debido a que no era pública por parte de la mayoría de fabricantes y por lástima en muchos casos usada de forma interesada comercialmente. En la actualidad se ha realizado un gran esfuerzo por la mayoría de ellos, creándose una tendencia cada vez más recia en comunicar esta información, al mismo tiempo que los grandes proveedores de soluciones de almacenamiento se ajustan a estándares para universalizar sus productos y flexibilizar una mayor integración en cualquier entorno heterogéneo cada vez más común.

En almacenamiento hay diferentes organismos para mejorar estos grandes problemas de incompatibilidades entre diferentes proveedores, de forma que establecen estándares y protocolos para una mejor comunicación e integración entre los dispositivos de almacenamiento. Entre todas ellas es destacable  el trabajajo que realiza SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) cuyo proposito es encabezar en la industria el desarrollo y promoción de estándares, tecnologías y servicios educacionales para apoderar la gestión de información. Todos los grandes fabricantes de almacenamiento son miembros de la SNIA y de forma paulatina va creciendo un marco de interoperatividad entre todos ellos. Aún así, debido al proceso lento de salida y aceptación de estos estándares se realizan de forma independiente muchas alianzas tecnológicas entre diferentes fabricantes que en su mayoría pretenden impulsar propios productos de avanzada tecnología consiguiendo en gran cantidad de casos ser pioneros y mejorar su cartera de productos y especificaciones y por consiguiente competir comercialmente. Forzando que el resto de competidores tecnológicos acepten e integren estas nuevas especificaciones aún no estandarizadas, motivada por esta necesidad de compatibilidad en entornos heterogéneos y para que no penalice su imagen comercial.

A continuación se aportará  información junto con enlaces de  los proveedores y fabricantes de almacenamiento para el conocimiento de la Interoperabilidad de sus productos con las de otros fabricantes.
