I don't know of anything that can simulate a fiber channel SAN. If iSCSI or NFS is ok there are a few free products out there that you can run with to present IP based storage. The only one I have personally used is OpenFiler and it worked fine for both iSCSI and NFS.

Check out http://www.openfiler.com/ to get you started.

Good Luck

If you have access to a NetApp Reseller, you can ask them for the OnTap Simulator which runs on Linux, which emulates/simulates a NetApp Filer, as the Simulator is based on the actual OS OnTap which runs on the NetApp Filer.

Very handy, if you intend to purchase a NetApp Filer. (it can emulate everything except Fibre Channel, iSCSI, NFS, CIFs).

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Tackle projects and never again get stuck behind a technical roadblock.
