The amount of storage used by organizations is growing exponentially, creating a need for a storage system that is fast and easily accessible by multiple virtual machines (VMs) and applications. In addition, the storage itself must be highly available (HA) to provide maximum uptime numbers for desired applications. Fibre Channel infrastructure is a good option, but it involves high implementation costs and requires specific hardware to support it. That’s where iSCSI comes into play. It is a block protocol that works over the common Ethernet network. Thus, iSCSI brings ease of implementation along with speed and becomes a perfect fit for shared storage systems.
