Availibility of an iSCSI Tape Target under Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Server)

I am developing an application for archive large amounts of data to a centralized server and am  looking for an iSCSI Target Implementation that will support Tape Drives under Linux.

Has anyone come across any products that will do this?

There are iSCSI bridges from folks like ATTO and SpectraLogic.

Essentially they are HW deices that you would plug a tape drive into that converts it to a iSCSI target.

iSCSI is pretty much OS agnostic,it is a implemtation of scsi over the IP transport.

So I'm not sure what you mean by Linux implemtation .

What we have is a legacy JBOT (Just a box of tapes) of 6 LTO-3 tapes attached to a Linux server via multiple ultra 320 SCSI HBAs to the tape drives. The server is attached to the network via 10GigE.

What we are looking for is a software solution that we can use to build our own iSCSI bridge. I have seen multiple iSCSI Target implementations for disks, but none that explicitly call out tape devices and most say they are only compatible with block devices. I have found one software product that will work under windows, but as of yet nothing under Linux.
