The Internet SCSI (iSCSI) protocol allows a client system (initiator) to send SCSI commands to targets on a remote server over an existing IP network infrastructure, thus providing a low cost alternative to a Storage Area Network (SAN) infrastructure. The Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage System supports the iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, FTP, and HTTP protocols and provides a comprehensive set of data services that can provide unlimited snapshots, a cloning feature, rollback, and remote replication. Automatic Storage Management (ASM) is a feature in Oracle Database 10g and 11g that provides a simpler data management and a vertically integrated file system and volume manager that are specifically built for Oracle databases.
