Subject: [ANNOUNCE]: SCST version 2.2.1 released
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 16th January 2013 01:15:27 UTC (over 3 years ago)
SCST version 2.2.1 has just been released. This release includes SCST core,
target 
drivers iSCSI-SCST (iSCSI), qla2x00t (QLogic Fibre Channel), ib_srpt
(InfiniBand 
SRP) and scst_local (local loopback-like access) as well as SCST management

utility scstadmin.

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 network interface only, but they can use any link 
supporting SCSI-style data exchange, like Fibre Channel or SAS. Majority of
modern 
SAN appliances, especially higher end ones, are SCST based. It might well
be that 
your favorite storage appliance running SCST in the firmware.

More info about SCST and its modules you can find on: http://scst.sourceforge.net

Thanks to all who made it happen, especially Bart Van Assche, who prepared
the 
packages!
