The HP-UX iSCSI software initiator allows iSCSI connectivity from HP Integrity and HP 9000 servers to iSCSI storage devices and iSCSI routers. The HP-UX iSCSI software initiator enables block storage access via existing Ethernet networks, utilizing 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 economics, operating distance and manageability of storage networks. iSCSI can be utilized to connect isolated servers to existing Fibre Channel SANs with the Cisco MDS 9000 IP Services Module or connected directly to arrays such as HP Proliant DL380 Storage Server with HP iSCSI Feature Pack. More details are available below at the "Supported Targets" link

The HP-UX iSCSI software initiator is available for free download.
