Subject: [ANNOUNCE]: Released version 2.1 of SCST core, target drivers iSCSI-SCST, qla2x00t (QLogic FC), ib_srpt (InfiniBand SRP) and scst_local with scstadmin utility and fileio_tgt user space backend handler

I'm glad to announce stable release 2.1 of SCST, the most advanced,
features rich
and the highest performance SCSI target stack for Linux with target drivers
for
iSCSI (iSCSI-SCST), QLogic Fibre Channel 22xx/23xx/24xx/25xx (qla2x00t),
InfiniBand SRP (ib_srpt), scst_local as well as user space scstadmin
management
utility and fileio_tgt user space backend handler.

SCST allows creation of sophisticated storage devices, which provide
advanced
functionality, like replication, thin provisioning, deduplication, high
availability, automatic backup, etc. Another class of such devices are
Virtual
Tape Libraries (VTL) as well as other disk-based backup solutions. SCST
created
devices not limited by IP network interface only, but they can use any link
supporting SCSI-style data exchange, including Fibre Channel, SAS and
parallel
SCSI. It might well be that your favorite storage appliance running SCST in
the
firmware.

Thanks to all who made it happen, especially to Bart Van Assche for ib_srpt
development and a lot of other SCST activities and Mark Buechler for great
scstadmin tool!
