Storage and Network Design
Storage and network are two core components of a database infrastructure. Choosing the right storage technology and design is essential in providing the expected performance and security. Knowing how to configure the network is a key task when you want to optimize the data transit between the several layers (clients, database, middleware, primary and standby site) and also within a database cluster.
