Linux provide facilities to expose emulated LUNs to initiators using Linux-IO (LIO) scsi target implementation . LIO not only support exposing conventional block devices but also supports other storage interfaces like file or memory based LUNs. Also it supports multiple fabric interfaces - FC, FCoE, iscsi and many more.
LIO can be used in SAN environments with minimal storage resources.
Native support for LIO in linux hypervisors and in Openstack make it a good storage option for cloud deployments.
This talk will throw light on insights of LIO and its features and a quick hands-on with LIO.
