The SAN key benefits how useful for larger organizations

SANs are particularly helpful in backup and disaster recovery settings. Within a SAN, data can be transferred from one storage device to another without interacting with a server. 
This speeds up the backup process and eliminates the need to use server CPU cycles for backup. Also, many SANs utilize Fibre Channel technology or other networking protocols that allow the networks to span longer distances geographically.
  • That makes it more feasible for companies to keep their backup data in remote locations.
  • Utilizing a SAN can also simplify some management tasks, potentially allowing organizations to hire fewer IT workers or to free up some IT workers for other tasks. It's also possible to boot servers from a SAN, which can reduce the time and hassles involved in replacing a server.

Advantages-Before the advent of SANs, organizations generally used direct-attached storage (DAS). As the name implies, direct-attached storage is directly attached to the server, residing either on the server or in a standalone storage device that is not part of a separate storage networking environment. 

Many smaller organizations continue to use DAS today because it offers lower upfront costs than deploying a SAN. However, for larger companies, the benefits of a SAN often outweigh the costs.
Alternatives-Sometimes people confuse the term SAN with the term NAS, which stands for "network-attached storage." The key to distinguishing the two lies in the last term of each acronym: a SAN (storage area network) is an actual network, while NAS (network-attached storage) refers to a storage device, typically in an IP network. 
While SANs provide block-level storage for servers, a NAS device provides file-level storage for     end users. 

For example, the mail application on your company servers might utilize a SAN to           store all the messages, contacts and other data it requires; by contrast, an end user would use a         NAS device to save files, such as word processing documents or spreadsheets. Operating systems see a SAN as a disk, while they see a NAS device as a file server.

Different Types Of Payment Cards

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

The Gift card

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa.
