SYSTEM NEWS FOR SUN USERS
Vol 128 Issue 1 2008-10-04 Article 20571 from section "OpenSolaris"

Blog by Ben Rockwood - Intro and discussion on iSCSI

The OpenSolaris COMSTAR project is one of Sun's leading Open Storage
initiatives. It separates and abstracts back-end storage however
access is allowed. Through COMSTAR's SMTF users can allocate some raw
disk and then provide it to SAN through an FC Target, iSCSI Target or
SAS Target etc. Users can now, with 100 percent open source software,
turn a white-box PC with a bunch of SATA disks and a Fibre Channel
HBA into what appears to a SAN to be an enterprise grade Fibre
Channel array.
