  • I

    I/O blender effect

    The I/O blender effect is a phenomenon in virtualized environments that degrades storage performance.  The I/O blender effect occurs when multiple virtual machines (VMs) all send their input/output (I/O) streams to a hypervisor for processing.

  • I/O contention (input/output contention)

    I/O contention (input/output contention), occurs when virtual machines compete for I/O resources because there is a limited storage bandwidth.

  • I/O virtualization (IOV)

    I/O virtualization (IOV), or input/output virtualization, is technology that uses software to abstract upper-layer protocols from physical connections or physical transports.

  • IBM General Parallel File System (IBM GPFS)

    The IBM General Parallel File System is one of the top file systems used in high-performance computing and the basis for many storage products used in supercomputing.

  • IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics)

    Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE) refers to the integration of the controller and drive.

  • iFCP (Internet Fibre Channel Protocol)

    iFCP (Internet Fibre Channel Protocol) is an emerging standard for extending Fibre Channel storage networks across the Internet.

  • illumos

    Illumos is a free, open source operating system (OS) developed as a fork of Unix-based OpenSolaris, the open source community-built derivative of the Solaris OS.

  • InfiniBand

    InfiniBand is an architecture and specification for data flow between processors and I/O devices. The technology is most often used in high-performance computing (HPC) environments... (Continued)

  • information architecture

    In technical writing, information architecture is the set of ideas about how all information in a given context should be treated philosophically and, in a general way, how it should be organized.

  • information life cycle management (ILM)

    Information life cycle management (ILM) is a comprehensive approach to managing the flow of an information system's data and associated metadata from creation and initial storage to the time when it becomes obsolete and is deleted.

  • intelligent switch

    An intelligent switch is a high-level storage area network (SAN) routing switch that provides features such as storage virtualization, quality of service (QoS), remote mirroring, data sharing, protocol conversion, and advanced security.

  • International Standard Recording Code (ISRC)

    The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) is an international code used to identify sound and audio-visual recordings on compact discs (CDs), music videos, and other media, primarily to ensure royalty payments.

  • Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) adapter

    An iSCSI adapter is a network interface card that enables the transmission of data between host computers and iSCSI-based storage arrays and typically handles the TCP/IP processing.

  • IP SAN (Internet Protocol storage area network)

    An IP SAN is a dedicated storage area network (SAN) that allows multiple servers to access pools of shared block storage devices using storage protocols that depend on the Internet Engineering Taskforce standard Internet Protocol suite.

  • IP storage

    IP storage is a general term for several approaches to using the Internet Protocol (IP) in a storage area network (SAN) usually over Gigabit Ethernet.
