iSCSI (Internet Small Computer System Interface) is a protocol that is based on TCP / IP and is designed to establish interoperability and management of storage systems, servers and clients.
• Transport protocol for SCSI, which runs over TCP.
• Mechanism for encapsulating SCSI commands in an IP network.
• A protocol for a new generation of storage systems that use native TCP/IP.
The iSCSI protocol is standardized by RFC 3720. There are many commercial and non-commercial implementations of this protocol.
ISCSI-based systems can be built on any reasonably fast physical basis that supports IP, such as Gigabit Ethernet or 10G Ethernet. Using a standard protocol, you can use standard tools for monitoring and controlling the flow, and also significantly reduces the cost of equipment compared to Fiber Channel networks.
Create iSCSI LUN. To share storage, the first thing to create an iSCSI lun (aka. iSCSI virtual disk) the iSCSI virtual disk is backed by a VHD. To complete iSCSI target server, the configuration goes to Server Manager.
After the Installation you can view the virtual disk in iSCSI tab.
When the configuring iSCSI storage has finished, you should configure iSCSI initiator on the AcloudA. So, now we are going to configure iSCSI initiator, for that you can use our “Quick Start Guide” on the Download page of AcloudA site.
So in that way we deployed and configured a simple iSCSI server based on Windows Server 2016, with the ability to connect via iSCSI to our AcloudA device
