          Summary

          This paper studied of (SAN, iSCSI protocol) 
          and investigates about possibility, using 
          storage technology of the SANs, and iSCSI-
          SAN protocol, to improve access to attached 
          storage disks storages in local system, with 
          using iSCSI-SANs as virtual storage, is 
          rather than DAS storage, in local system. 
          Where explains the results of experiment is 
          that improving throughput of iSCSI-SANs in 
          terms of (I/Os, MB/s), and average response 
          time in different block sizes of the (I/O) 
          request, were better than attached storage 
          disks storages as DAS in local system. This 
          means that use iSCSI-SANs in local system 
          as attaché storage disks storages as DAS , 
          was become possible, without cost , high 
          performance, easy control, and allow for use 
          of all a traditional DAS at a fraction of the cost 
          , without complexity and effort as SAN. The 
          SCVM applications, allow for conversion DAS 
          storage to an SAN storage as virtual machine 
          are accessed by machines using iSCSI-SAN 
          protocol. Thus, The iSCSI-SANs technology 
          is well suitable to implement the SAN, until in 
          system of PC same.

          Abstract

          iSCSI is a newly emerging protocol with the goal of implementing the Storage Area Network (SAN) technology over TCP/IP, where enables to access to remote data that in attached storage disks storages - Direct Attached Storage(DAS) over IP-networked. Also it's brings economy and convenience whereas it also raises performance and reliability issues.This paper investigates about possibility , using storage technology of the SANs, and iSCSI-SAN protocol, to improve access to attached storage disks storages in local system, with using iSCSI-SANs as virtual storage, is rather than DAS storage in local system of PC. Explicates after experiment procedure is that improving throughput of iSCSI-SANs was better than attached storage disks storages - DAS in local system . This means is that it can use iSCSI-SANs in local system of PC as attache storage disks storages as DAS , where was become fact not possible, without cost , high performance, and easy control.
