ISCSI TCP-IP TOE cards

ISCSI SANs are quickly gaining acceptance in small business and enterprise environments, spurred on by the simplicity, low cost, and ubiquitous availability of Ethernet networks. Still, the benefits of iSCSI are often tempered by performance limitations when iSCSI storage traffic is added on top of everyday user LAN traffic. One means of improving iSCSI traffic performance is to include TOE (TCI/IP Offload Engine) capability on the Ethernet card itself. This chapter covers the specific considerations involved in iSCSI TOE cards. Following the considerations, you'll find a series of specifications to help make on-the-spot product comparisons between vendors.
