ISCSI-Storage for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses
Small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) have stayed away from SAN implementations in the past because of the expense and complexity of Fibre Channel technologies. However, the introduction of iSCSI has started a shift in SMB storage. The use of Ethernet translates to lower cost, easier maintenance and simpler management for SANs. Today, SMB users can run block-based applications, such as databases at performance levels that rival Fibre Channel SANs.
