Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator Software, 5 User License
The ATTO Xtend SAN iSCSI initiator package for Macintosh OS X enables block storage access via existing Ethernet networks, using standard network interface cards (NICs). The iSCSI protocol defines the rules and processes for transporting SCSI (block-level) data over a TCP/IP network, iSCSI enables improvements in the cost, operating distance, and manageability of storage networks.
Xtend SAN consists of an iSCSI device driver, an initiator service manager, and a management interface. The iSCSI Device Driver is responsible for moving data from the storage stack to the network stack, where the data can be passed both internally through a company's intranet, and externally via the Internet using a standard Gigabit Ethernet network. Xtend SAN monitors and controls the iSCSI configuration for the initiator. The management interface is designed to allow users the ability to configure specific protocol options and manage target devices through a graphical user interface.
