This page contains links to various protocols used for block storage and backups.

Block Protocols

  • ["SCSI"]: ["Small Computer System Interface"] A protocol normally used to attach devices such as disk drives, scanners, tape drives etc to a computer. Considered being more high-end and superior to ["ATA"]. Ethereal supports dissection of ["SCSI"] over ["Fibre Channel"], ["iSCSI"], ["NDMP"] and ["HyperSCSI"]
  • ["ATA"]: ["AT Attachment"] A protocol used mainly to talk to IDE hard disks on desktop and laptop PCs. Ethereal supports dissection of ["ATA"] over ["AOE"]

Transports

Fibre Channel Family

  • ["Fibre Channel"]: A low-latency interconnect used to connect FC/SCSI devices to hosts in a ["Fibre Channel"] ["SAN"]. Expensive but provides high performance. --XXX all other fibrechannel protocols we support to be added as well

IP Storage Family

  • ["iSCSI"]: A protocol to transport ["SCSI"] ontop of TCP/IP.
  • ["iSNS"]: ["Internet Storage Name Server"]: A name server (and more) similar to the ["Fibre Channel"] name server.
  • ["FCIP"]: ["Fibre Channel Over IP"] A protocol to transport ["Fibre Channel"] over IP.
  • ["iFCP"]: ["Internet Fibre Channel Protocol"] Another protocol to transport ["Fibre Channel"] over TCP/IP.

Ethernet based storage

  • ["HyperSCSI"]: A protocol to transport ["SCSI"] over Ethernet.
  • ["AOE"]: ["ATA Over Ethernet"]: A protocol to transport ["ATA"] over Ethernet.

Backup protocols

  • ["NDMP"]: ["Network Data Management Protocol"]: A protocol to manage backups over an IP network.
