What is software iSCSI Storage?
SCSI terminology, LUN stands for logical unit number. A LUN represents an individually addressable (logical) SCSI device that is part of a physical SCSI device (target). In an iSCSI environment, LUNs are essentially numbered disk drives
SCSI storage area networks have been around for more than a decade now. They originally arose as a cut-price alternative for smaller organisations that needed block storage but couldn’t run to the cost and complexity of Fibre Channel.
For some time they were the SME-targeted little brother to market leader Fibre Channel in terms of performance and reliability. But, iSCSI SAN products are now a fully-featured part of most storage array maker’s product ranges and with the speed of 10Gbps Ethernet and careful network design can be the equal of Fibre Channel.
