Large storage installations are extremely complex today and as storage capacities grow, the complexity increases. One of the primary constraints which developers face is the inability to test any SAN software against large, complex san environments for the want of hardware resources. It might not always be practically feasible to own expensive IBM and non-IBM SAN boxes just to test out the software. This creates unenviable situation where the SAN boxes have to be timeshared across geographically distributed teams for testing and development. The SAN Simulator will simulate a SAN environment through software. The simulator will allow the user to create a SAN configuration, add devices to the SAN, create arbitrary connections between devices and remove connections between devices. Since most of devices today expose their services through a CIMOM, the simulator will create CIM instances based on user specifications. The simulator will generate various profiles like fabric, array, and disk profiles in temporal fashion. Simulator can also take snapshot of existing real live CIMOMs, replay back as required and provide what-if-analysis platform.

Ramani Routray is an Advisory Software Engineer at IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California. His research interests are: storage systems, integrated server-network-storage management, disaster recovery and machine learning. He has been with IBM since 1999. He has authored several IBM academy papers, publications in external conferences, IBM Redbook and has filed several patents. One of the patent(U.S. Patent US7246254B2) - ADR(Autonomic Data Recovery) was awarded with Autonomic Computing special patent award. He has also made significant contributions to IBM Totalstorage Productivity Center (TPC), Eclipse Aperi SAN Simulator.
