This is a really wide open question. There are several methods of implementing SAN. You might have 2 teamed NICs in a Server and a Fibre Channel connection to your SAN. Or you might have a NAS (Network Attached Storage) where the Storage gets it's own IP address/NIC etc, independent of a "server".

It might take a little research to get the real answer to what your looking for.
