Abstract: 

Homes already have huge amounts of data and multiple networked computers/ devices. The need for consolidation and central management is pressing. While a number of open source components are available to put together cheap SANs, their orchestration remains a challenge. This session discusses how different Linux components (MD - Software RAID, LVM, iSCSI Enterprise Target) can be put together and made usable as an iSCSI SAN storage array (or appliance) along with live demonstrations based on virtual machines running on the presenter’s laptop.
