  • Good match: iSCSI and vSphere

    To realize the full benefits of vSphere, you need networked storage. And when it comes to virtualized servers, iSCSI is viewed as the top choice over Fibre Channel. 

  • iSCSI: Ready for prime time?

    "Installing iSCSI was absolutely a no-brainer," says Dave DePillis at Allied Cash Advance, which has been using an iSCSI SAN for two years. Also, learn how clustered storage offers performance and scalability, and how recovering just Exchange data is... 

  • 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. 

  • VHDCI (Very High Density Cable Interconnect)

    Very High Density Cable Interconnect (VHDCI) is a compact 68-contact multipurpose connection type. VHDCI is optimized for applications that require high-performance but have space limitations. The technology is most commonly used in SCSI-3 hard drive... 

  • SCSI controller (Small Computer System Interface controller)

    A SCSI controller, also called a host bus adapter (HBA), is a card or chip that allows a SCSI storage device to communicate with the operating system across a SCSI bus.

About ISCSI SAN

ISCSI SANs carry SCSI commands and storage traffic over existing IP networks, which translates to lower cost, easier maintenance and simpler management -- not to mention giving Fibre Channel SANs tougher competition. Find the latest news and resources on this popular SAN topic.
