In this video, learn critical iSCSI concepts, including the network topology and key components of an iSCSI SAN. Learn what LUNs are, and how they are presented to ESXi 6.7 hosts over the iSCSI network.
- [Instructor] In this video, … we'll take a look at iSCSI Storage concepts, … and we'll learn how iSCSI Storage solutions can be used … to deliver VMFS datastores. … So, here we see the different components … of an iSCSI Storage Array. … And iSCSI is really just one of the many options … of storage arrays that we have available. … We could do a fiber channel storage array … or we could do NFS or fiber channel over ethernet. … But for the moment, … let's just focus in on iSCSI specifically, … and let's take a look at the components … of the storage array itself. … So, let's get rid of the vSphere side of our picture here … and focus specifically on the network … and the array components, right? … So, here we see connecting to the storage array, … we've got an ethernet switch, right? … And that's the type of network that we use for iSCSI … is just a standard ethernet network right? … So, we've got this ethernet connectivity here … that we use to connect our ESXi Hosts to the storage array, …
