ISCSI Performance and Architecture and Comparison to Other Network Protocols

This paper discusses various approaches to accessing storage over IP networks. In particular, we
discuss an approach for accessing storage using the SCSI protocol layered over TCP/IP, called
iSCSI. We discuss the pros and cons of such an approach versus alternative schemes for storage
