If you are a complete beginner then Using SANs and NAS is a good introduction


SAN Storage Essentials from Veritas: I have and can recommend. It's pricey at 80 dollars so I looked on O'Reilly Safari where there are about a dozen to chose from. You can get a free 10 day subscription so you could dip in and read a couple of those for free in 10 days. Most of them seem to be from 2002-2004 timeframe which was when SAN's started to get popular and I don't think the basics have changed that much since then, just got faster.
