Part IV Network Storage

  • 14 iSNS for Linux
  • Storage area networks (SANs) can contain many disk drives that are dispersed across complex networks. This can make device discovery and device ownership difficult. iSCSI initiators must be able to identify storage resources in the SAN and determine whether they have access to them.

  • 15 Mass Storage over IP Networks: iSCSI
  • One of the primary tasks of a computer center, or any site that supports servers, is to provide adequate disk capacity. Fibre Channel is often used for this purpose. iSCSI (Internet SCSI) solutions provide a lower-cost alternative to Fibre Channel that can leverage commodity servers and Ethernet net…

  • 16 Fibre Channel Storage over Ethernet Networks: FCoE
  • Many enterprise data centers rely on Ethernet for their LAN and data traffic, and on Fibre Channel networks for their storage infrastructure. Open Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Initiator software allows servers with Ethernet adapters to connect to a Fibre Channel storage subsystem over an Ether…

  • 17 NVMe-oF
  • This chapter describes how to set up an NVMe-oF host and target.

  • 18 Managing Multipath I/O for Devices
  • This section describes how to manage failover and path load balancing for multiple paths between the servers and block storage devices by using Multipath I/O (MPIO).

  • 19 Managing Access Control Lists over NFSv4
  • There is no single standard for Access Control Lists (ACLs) in Linux beyond the simple read, write, and execute (rwx) flags for user, group, and others (ugo). One option for finer control is the Draft POSIX ACLs, which were never formally standardized by POSIX. Another is the NFSv4 ACLs, which were …
