To supplement the growth in iSCSI SANs, Dell has introduced an iSCSI-to-SAS bridge card for the TL-series of tape libraries (Dell PowerVault TL2000 & TL4000). This offering allows a customer to directly attach a tape backup target to their iSCSI 1Gb Ethernet SAN with little to no degradation in transfer speed, 90 MB/s in most cases. This white paper explores the setup, configuration and considerations associated with implementing this solution.
