iSCSI for TL-Series Tape Libraries
This white paper assumes a typical SMB environment with 5-10 Windows servers as an example of how to implement an iSCSI tape backup solution. The example SMB network incorporates an iSCSI 1GbE SAN containing disk (primary/secondary storage) and tape (backup & archive) elements. The intent is to provide insight into the purchase decisions and setup considerations regarding the ISVs, server initiators, networks and storage target. Please note, there are many different variations - this is just one of them. The primary focus will center around the set up and configuration of an iSCSI network and perform back-ups to it.
