Dear Byte and Switch...

Greetings. I am Bob, the Byte and Switch Beaver. As you may have guessed, I am a storage networking expert.

The folks at Byte and Switch asked me to write a regular [ed. note: or irregular] industry insider's Q&A column to answer your burning questions about life and love in the SAN. I can also give you pointers on home brewing or snowboarding if you are into that stuff. Send email to me at [email protected]. You should know Bob the Beaver is expected to be the most widely read column of all time.

OK. A little more about me: I live in New York City, so don't mess with me. Yeah, seriously. Also, I usually smell really bad and I'm a Mets fan.

Enough chit-chat already. Let's get to your questions.

Dear Bob the Beaver,
