Year 2005 - iSCSI-based Storage Area Networks Print
November 2005
The goal is to develop a cost effective iSCSI based storage area network solution for medium sized organisations that need to manage a lot of data storage. iSCSI is an implementation of SCSI over TCP/IP over Ethernet as ratified by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). It is the newest standard for storage area networks and complements optic fibre based Storage Area Networks. All components for making up an iSCSI SAN are available but some such as Storage Virtualisation Software are not standardised.
