Microsoft is releasing the iSCSI Target Server
This is a very cool tool, actually you can’t live without in home aka lab/testing env. 😉
The Microsoft iSCSI Software Target 3.3 provides storage (disks) over a TCP/IP network. It turns a computer running Windows Server into a storage device which provides shared block storage. You can use Microsoft iSCSI Software Target 3.3 to perform a variety of storage-related tasks, including the following:
- Provide shared storage for Hyper-V to enable high availability and live migration
- Consolidate storage for multiple application servers (i.e. Microsoft SQL Server or Hyper-V)
- Provide shared storage for applications hosted on a Windows failover cluster
- Enable diskless computers to boot remotely from a single operating system image using iSCSI
