New iSCSI in the S7000 series

Roch Bourbonnais published an article about the new iSCSI framework in the S7000 series. Earlier versions of the S7000 firmware used the userland iSCSI daemon that was used in Solaris 10. Now the iSCSI functionality of the appliance is based on COMSTAR. This change is quite significant: Roch observed in a test an speedup by factor 2.7 as he states in “iSCSI unleashed”. Really worth a read.
