Due to the excitement of Internet and high bandwidth, there are more and more multimedia applications involving digital industry. However the storage and the real-time of the conventional storage architecture cannot cater for the requirements of continuous media. The most important storage architecture used in past is Direct Attached Storage (DAS) and RAID cabinet, and recently, both Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Storage Area Networks (SAN) are the alterative storage network topology. But as for the multimedia characters, there need more storage capacity and more simultaneous streams. In this paper, we have introduced a novel concept 'Unified Storage Network' (USN) to build efficient SAN over IP, to bridge the gap of NAS and SAN, furthermore to resolve the scalability problem of storage for multimedia applications.
