The advent of cloud brought a new requirement on storage. The storage nodes in the cloud have to communicate with each other and bring the hot data near the application across the data centers and the communication must be standard-based.

This session proposes iSCSI protocol to achieve the inter-storage node communication for enterprise grade cloud. This may not be applicable for object storage. This is NOT intended to cover the underlying storage implementation to optimally support this communication. ISCSI is chosen for the communication emerging as a de facto standard.
