iSCSI SAN Books, Articles, Training
Posted on 2010-01-12
I would love recommendations for ways to get a solid basic foundation in iSCSI technology.
I'm looking for resources that will allow me and my team to get up to speed quickly on implementing, managing, and troubleshooting iSCSI SANs. Books, articles, and even training class recommendations would be welcome.
We will be getting our first iSCSI SAN (an entry level Dell MD3000i). We've got lots of networking and general sys admin experience floating around, but this is our first foray into SANs.
I got the Dummies book on Storage Area Networks because the first bullet point on the book cover talked about iSCSI SANs - but boy was that a disappointment. There was a paltry 3-4 pages about iSCSI (some of which was repeat information). There are some other iSCSI books out there, but they look to be 7-8 years old - but maybe that's fine?
I'm also open to suggestions for articles - but I'm looking for something that will offer technical knowledge, not just higher level business-need driven articles.
Really good training class recommendations are also welcome.
