In this series of post I will start with a simplified SAN architecture based upon a dual-fabric edge-core-edge design. (Remember this might not be a good design as I described here but for the purpose of this guide it will suffice.) As we go along with other topics we’ll extend it as needed. The top switch is SW01, the core switch is SW02 and the bottom switch is SW03. This is valid for both fabrics.
