Fibre Cables SAN

Hi Friends,

What type of Fibre optics cables available(Single and Multi Mode)? I would like to understand the distance, speed limitations. I am very much new to SAN technology, hence wanted to understand how it works. Also  how can we achieve a fibre optic cable connectivity between 2 Data Center separated by 100-500KM?

I'm thinking the best in your case is to ask your SAN storage provider for a presentation on the different possibilities based on your actual and future architecture. Due to the distance, the best option will be probably to study an FCIP solution.
