            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.
