What does iSCSI mean?

iSCSI
In computing, iSCSI, is an acronym for Internet Small Computer System Interface, an Internet Protocol-based storage networking standard for linking data storage facilities. By carrying SCSI commands over IP networks, iSCSI is used to facilitate data transfers over intranets and to manage storage over long distances. iSCSI can be used to transmit data over local area networks, wide area networks, or the Internet and can enable location-independent data storage and retrieval. The protocol allows clients to send SCSI commands to SCSI storage devices on remote servers. It is a storage area network protocol, allowing organizations to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally attached disks. Unlike traditional Fibre Channel, which requires special-purpose cabling, iSCSI can be run over long distances using existing network infrastructure. iSCSI was pioneered by IBM and Cisco in 1998 and submitted as draft standard in March 2000.
