    Free iSCSI target \ network storage box

    Came across this before while reading up on the iSCSI issue I'm having... looks very useful...

    Openfiler — Openfiler Homepage

    Could be great for disk backups, testing clustering or whatever else you might need iSCSI storage for, plus all the other features as well

    Good for backups or something similar. As fas as I'm aware though openfiler doesn't support iscsi clustering, so if you're looking for any kind of failover it's a no-no.

    Using it for backups here - works great. See also: FreeNAS.

    It's rather good - we're using it here. Just make sure it's fully patched before use - 2.3 had issues with high cpu after a few days if using Samba.
