Title: STORAGE AREA NETWORK MANAGEMENT
Abstract:
In one example, allocate from a storage device a master storage volume which is to be identified as a master Logical Unit Number (LUN, load the master LUN with an operating image to allow a host computing device to initiate a boot procedure using the operating image. In response to receipt of a boot request from a host computing device over the SAN that includes a reference to the master LUN, then allocate from the storage device a clone storage volume which is to be identified as a clone LUN, and copy the master LUN to the clone LUN which is to include a copy of the operating image of the master LUN and to allow the host computing device to initiate a boot procedure using the copied operating image over the SAN.
