iSCSI Target Software Appliance (iTSA™)

iSCSI Target Software Appliance (iTSA™) is a standalone software product that enables building a complete iSCSI based Network Storage appliance using off-the-shelf servers. All you need is a standard server and an ITSA to have a SAN… iTSA’s easy-to-use, web based management GUI gives users a central management station to configure, allocate, and manage the storage resources for the entire enterprise. iTSA™ will turn any standard server into a Networked Storage by allowing any storage, internal disks, volumes created by a raid adapter, or external storage attached to that server to be shared with other servers on the network.
