 * ["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 FibreChannel, ["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"]
 * [[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]]. Wireshark supports dissection of [[SCSI]] over FibreChannel, [[iSCSI]], [[NDMP]] and [[HyperSCSI]]

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

These protocols are often used in Storage Area Networks (SAN).

Transports

Fibre Channel Family

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