Storage Area Network (SAN) Services


A storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that interconnects and creates shared pools of storage devices on multiple servers. A SAN moves storage resources off a common user network and reorganizes them (often by tiers based on usage) into an independent, high-performance network. This allows each server to access shared storage as if it were a drive directly attached to the server. 

How can I request assistance?

To request new SAN storage, modify existing SAN storage, or decommission SAN storage, submit a Pegasus Ticket to VUMC IT STORAGE-SAN.

Note:  A request for a new storage capacity of 20TB or greater requires going through the VUMC IT governance process.  Contact a Customer Relationship Manager for assistance.  Owners of the Governance can also be contacted via  LaShawn Shaw, Linda Smith, or Kelvin Parker.
