Six Uses for the Microsoft iSCSI Software Target - Windows Storage Server

In this post I outline my favorite uses for an iSCSI Software Target, if you know of other creative uses please let me know! Windows Storage Server 2008 and the iSCSI Software Target 3.2 are available from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in a variety of preconfigured storage appliances. Partners and customers can test and develop on the platform without having to buy a fully configured appliance from an OEM by getting an evaluation copy on MSDN or TechNet.

See Jose’s blog for information about that. A NAS refers to servers that communicate over a network using a file protocol (like CIFS, SMB or NFS) and a SAN refers to a network that connects application servers to dedicated storage devices, using protocols like Fibre Channel or iSCSI to transport SCSI 'block' commands and data. What is iSCSI and how to use it. What is Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI)? How to Speed Up Your NAS With iSCSI. Many technologies originally intended for the enterprise end up trickling down into the consumer market at some point.

How to Speed Up Your NAS With iSCSI

Some of these technologies (ethernet or virtualization, for instance) are more practical than others; but if businesses find a use for a specific piece of technology, then chances are good that consumers can benefit from it as well. Such is the case with iSCSI. iSCSI stands for Internet Small Computer System Interface. SCSI (sans i) has long served to connect a variety of peripherals to computer systems, but most commonly it appears in storage devices, such as hard drives or tape-backup drives. iSCSI builds upon the base technology by allowing users to connect to a remote storage volume over a network, as if said storage volume were a locally attached disk.

iSCSI � What Does It Mean for Your Storage Network? As the Internet and related activities continue to expand, the amount of data that needs to be stored is also increasing.

iSCSI � What Does It Mean for Your Storage Network?

Enterprises and other organizations require effective ways to store and maintain this data. In recent years, many enterprises have seen a significant increase in the volume of data produced. And, this amount of data continues to increase, particularly in Web-based and e-Commerce environments. A good example would be e-mail which impacts worldwide storage by producing more data than is generated by new Web pages.

These types of traffic are typically multimedia intensive. A new method is needed to bring improved storage capabilities to IP networks and reduce limitations associated with Fibre Channel SANs. iSCSI. We ask you, humbly, to help.


Hi reader in Canada, it seems you use Wikipedia a lot; that's great! It's a little awkward to ask, but this Friday we need your help. We’re not salespeople. We’re librarians, archivists, and information junkies. We depend on donations averaging $15, but fewer than 1% of readers give. Maybe later Thank you!
