QLogic is one of the solid companies in Storage segment & i want to share some real good snippets of knowledge from one of its guide(Qlogic SAN Configuration guide for CLARiion Storage) - its a nice guide - This is a must read for people trying jobs in Storage. This is a 106 page guide & has extensive snapshots of its management console which helps u understand & learn SAN deployment & management.Qlogic team tests their products in combination with many industry leading Storage solution for interoperability. Below are some of the terms,technologies & concepts a job seeker should be proficient in. Get more info on below stuff so u have an edge in your interview.

The QLogic SAN configuration test philosophy is broken down into two test levels:
- Application-level interoperability
- Device-level interoperability

Application-Level Interoperability Test
The application-level interoperability test ensures that applications such as backup/restore, LAN-free back-up, serverless backup, and server clustering will run as designed on a combinations of hardware components that are representative of customer configurations. At this level, the hardware configurations are, for the most part, complex and can involve numerous devices that differ by type, vendor and operating system. Since the objective of this test is to determine the feasibility of typical customer SAN solutions, not every function of the application can be tested. While the application-level interoperability test addresses the major functions of the application, successful completion of the test does not guarantee full
interoperability. However, it does provide a reasonably high level of confidence that the application will function well in most SAN solution scenarios.


Device-Level Interoperability

The device-level and system integration test verifies functionality of the device with additional hardware and software. The interoperability and system integration test ensures conformance with the ANSI Fibre Channel (FC) standards and interoperability between servers and storage.

Server Interoperability
This ensures there are no problems between the HBA and the server. Potential problems, which may be found in this testing, include incompatibility between the HBA and server PCI chipsets, and conflicts between the HBA driver/BIOS setting and drivers/BIOS setting of other installed devices/adapters in the server.

Storage Interoperability
Storage devices such as disk arrays and tape devices are tested with SAN hardware and HBAs. This ensures compatibility between the end device and SAN hardware. Potential problems that may be found include improper LIP handling, AL_PA and Worldwide Name problems, jitter, and so on.


Application Device-Level Interoperability

The application device-level interoperability test ensures coexistence with the operating system environment and typical user shrink-wrapped software. It also ensures that the software works with the applicable hardware. In the case of a Windows environment, the component should have successfully completed all applicable Microsoft Hardware Certification program tests.
