  • iSCSI initiator

    An iSCSI initiator is software or hardware that enables a host computer to transmit data to an iSCSI-based storage array through a network adapter over a TCP-based IP network.

  • 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.

  • Enterprise SAN comparison charts

    Expert Jacob Gsoedl drills into eight top-tier enterprise SAN products and how each one performs in seven technical areas. Detailed charts make the information easy to digest.

  • Mixing equipment firm standardizes on one hybrid array

    Philadelphia Mixing Solutions ditched four isolated SANs to deploy two hybrid NexGen arrays, with 32 TB of capacity apiece for primary storage and DR, avoiding storage silos.

  • SCSI (Small Computer System Interface)

    Definition: The Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) is a set of parallel interface standards used to attach disk drives and other peripherals to a computer. 

  • storage area network (SAN)

    Definition: A storage-area network (SAN) is used to move data between servers and the various storage devices those servers use. 

  • host bus adapter (HBA)

    A host bus adapter (HBA) provides physical connectivity and input/output between a server and a network and/or storage device. 

  • serial-attached SCSI (SAS)

    Serial-attached SCSI (SAS) is a point-to-point protocol used to transfer digital data between servers and SAS storage devices. 

  • iSCSI switch (Internet Small Computer System Interface switch)

    An iSCSI switch is an appliance that processes and channels data between an iSCSI initiator and target on a storage device. 

  • 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. 

  • iSCSI (Internet Small Computer System Interface)

    The iSCSI transport layer protocol allows the SCSI command to be sent over LANs, WANs and the Internet. Learn about its role in iSCSI SANs and virtualization. 

  • block storage

    Block storage is a type of data storage typically used in storage-area network (SAN) environments where data is stored in volumes, also referred to as blocks.
