About the book
The spiraling growth of digital information makes the ISM book a "must have" addition to all IT reference libraries. This exponential growth has driven information management technology to new levels of sophistication and complexity, exposing a skills gap that challenge IT managers and professionals alike. The ISM book, written by storage professionals from EMC Corporation, takes an ‘open’ approach to teaching information storage and management, focusing on concepts and principles – rather that product specifics – that can be applied in all IT environments
The book enables existing and aspiring IT professionals, students, faculty, and those simply wishing to gain deeper insight to this emerging pillar of IT infrastructure to achieve a comprehensive understanding of all segments of information storage technology.
The book follows the Storage Technologist EMC course path covering Information Availability Design and Management, planning, implementation, and deployment and covers components of a storage system and different storage system models--ranging from basic storage models such as Direct Attached Storage (DAS) to networked storage models such as Network Attached Storage (NAS), Storage Area Network (SAN), and Content Addressed Storage (CAS).

About EMC Academic Alliance program
The rapid growth in digital information is demanding more and more trained storage professionals, resulting in a shortfall of skilled storage professionals. The EMC Academic Alliance was formed to prepare college students for careers in the expanding field of information storage and management.
The information technology (IT) industry is being re-shaped by the growing data volume and complexity of data management, elevating information storage as a central function of IT. This development has also created a skills gap in the fastest growing segment of IT; information storage and management.
EMC Academic Alliance is a global alliance of colleges, universities, and students working together to address this expanding skills gap.
EMC is working with colleges and universities worldwide to arm students with the knowledge necessary to differentiate themselves in the job market and improve their competitive advantage.
