Oracle Solaris iSCSI Technology (Overview)

iSCSI is an acronym for Internet SCSI (Small Computer System Interface), an Internet Protocol (IP)-based storage networking standard for linking data storage subsystems. This networking standard was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). For more information about the iSCSI technology, see RFC 3720:

By carrying SCSI commands over IP networks, the iSCSI protocol enables you to access block devices from across the network as if they were connected to the local system.

If you want to use storage devices in your existing TCP/IP network, the following solutions are available:

Here are the benefits of using Solaris iSCSI targets and initiators:

Here are the current limitations or restrictions of using the Solaris iSCSI initiator software:
