ISCSI TCP/IP TOE card specifications One means of improving iSCSI traffic performance is to include TOE (TCI/IP Offload Engine) capability on the Ethernet card itself. An iSCSI TOE allows the network adapter to process iSCSI traffic (often all Ethernet LAN traffic) locally -- relieving those burdensome processing tasks from the host server or other computers connected to the LAN. To implement this capability, iSCSI servers must be upgraded with Ethernet NICs that include a TOE chip onboard. Although the selection of iSCSI TOE cards is generally limited to just a few manufacturers, it's important to consider the available ports, host interface, and other card characteristics before making a purchase. The product snapshots in this segment highlight key specifications for a cross-section of popular iSCSI TOE cards.

IP storage switch and routers: Product snapshots IP storage networks have emerged as a versatile and inexpensive alternative to traditional Fibre Channel SANs, and IP SAN deployments -- primarily iSCSI -- are appearing in businesses of all sizes. iSCSI offers good speed and reliability, and can transport storage data across the Internet. IP SANs rely on IP storage switches and routers to segment storage traffic and keep it isolated from everyday user traffic. Today's IP switches and routers even offer advanced features like compression, acceleration, clustering, failover, and multipathing; optimizing WAN bandwidth and maintaining IP SAN availability in the event of hardware problems. The product snapshots in this chapter highlight key specifications for a cross section of popular IP storage switch and router products.
