iSCSI (Internet Small Computer System Interface) – is a protocol that allows you to transfer SCSI commands over a network. Typically, iSCSI is implemented for network storage arrays (SANs) to allow servers to access large amounts of disk space. The iSCSI protocol considers clients as initiators, and iSCSI servers as the target.
