Scott M. Johnson, a Program Manager in the Windows Storage Server team, has just published a new blog post that might give you some ideas on different ways to use the Microsoft iSCSI Software Target. He outlines six different uses for it:
1) Consolidate storage for multiple application servers.2) Test and Development scenarios are endless, especially for Clustering, Live Migration, SAN transfer and Storage Manager for SANs.3) Setup an iSCSI SAN for a Windows cluster. 4) Consolidate servers into Hyper-V VMs and migrate the data to a Windows Storage Server. 5) Diskless SAN boot over iSCSI!6) “Bonus storage” for people in your organization. Storage Administrators can be a hero! (for once).
