What do we mean when say "iSCSI" boot without HDD needed?

Microsoft Internet SCSI (iSCSI) Boot enables you to start Windows ServerĀ®-based computers by using a network adapter or an iSCSI host bus adapter (HBA) as an alternative method of accessing block-level storage to local storage. This can help save both power consumption and heat generated by eliminating the need for local storage on each server or blade server.
