What's good about iSCSI?
Posted on 2011-02-10
I have very limited knowledge and experience with external storage solutions. All my experience is to setup NAS devices. I do not know SAN or things like that.
Recently we will need to purchase one more Buffalo TeraStation III, I see they have an iSCSI version of TeraStation III, and it is not much more expensive at all. Who would be able to explain to me in plain language regarding the following questions?
1. What is good about iSCSI? Why I should use iSCSI as opposed to a NAS?
2. Does iSCSI have to be "attached" to a server? If so, we have a Dell PE2900, would this server work with iSCSI?
Thanks in advance
