With the advent of iSCSI as the standard for networked storage, businesses can leverage existing skills and network infrastructure to create Ethernet-based SANs that deliver the performance of Fibre Channel—but at a fraction of the cost. iSCSI enables block-level data to be transported between a server and a storage device over an IP network. An iSCSI initiator is hardware or software that runs on a host and initiates I/O to an iSCSI target, which is a storage device (usually, a logical volume) that responds to read/write requests.

IP storage using Internet SCSI (iSCSI) provides opportunity for many organizations looking to extend existing Fibre Channel SANs to stranded servers, or looking to deploy Ethernet-based SANs. It can reduce costs by allowing IT managers to take advantage of existing, familiar Ethernet networks. Often the biggest complaint white new technology like iSCSI is its ability to provide more than simple functionality and connectivity.

Today's economic climate has heightened the goal of every IT department to provide high-quality IT service to the business, at the lowest possible cost, while improving business outcomes. Looking outside of the infrastructure itself, there are two key challenges related to data storage: provisioning capacity for applications and reducing risk through a sound data protection strategy. This white paper discusses the challenges of creating the right storage infrastructure, provides an overview of data storage options, and examines a storage solution that combines blade servers and network-attached storage.
A cost-effective way to take advantage of storage consolidation, the IBM System Storage DS3400 Express, features Fibre Channel direct-attach or SAN solution for easy transition. It’s also simple to deploy and manage, and it’s expandable as you grow.
