Microsoft is preparing to launch Virtual Server 2005 R2 (that just left beta) and produces a couple of very interesting whitepapers.
The first one is Using iSCSI with Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2:
This paper provides brief background information about iSCSI and describes ways to use iSCSI with Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2.
The iSCSI protocol, which unifies the TCP/IP networking protocol with the SCSI storage protocol, defines the rules and processes for transmitting and receiving block storage data over TCP/IP networks. Support for iSCSI is provided with Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows 2000, and Microsoft Windows XP, and in Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2.
With iSCSI, the hardware needed for connecting servers to storage is less expensive and less complex than with the common alternative, Fibre Channel.
