I’m thinking about deploying a solution based on AOE. The fact that it doesn’t include a bunch of duplicated security code is an advantage. One of things that people who have not deployed ATAoE think is that it’s intended to be just plugged into any old network port on any old switch you have lying around the building. It’s not a VPN or a secure authentication system. As packets between initiator and target are not connection based, sequence numbers are irrelevant.

The protocol does not specify any packet loss detection or recovery mechanism. Your browser or web proxy might not support elliptic-curve TLS.

This forces aeo separate physical ethernet network for storage to achieve some security. This is still an experimental driver, although it has been used flawlessly on my own system for the past 2 years having been put winsows a few TB of datait might not work for you!

Create, list, and delete volume snapshots. Is that a risk, certainly I iwndows only assume that the only recovery the creators envision is request retransmission after a timeout, hoping that all requests can be repeated multiple times without side effects.


WinAoE – AoE Windows Driver

If that’s achievable, then accidental misconfiguration allowing untrusted initiators on the fabric should be able to be effectively mitigated. After this, you can image the drive to a vblade, or put it in a Coraid enclosure and boot over PXE, using either gPXE or the included aoe. Consider connecting to a live LUN hosting your accounting system and then formatting it.

AoE support enables connectivity to remote storage devices over a standard Ethernet network, regardless of where the device resides. The inventors of AoE. We are now looking into ZFS which we earlier thought was far too complex and slow. Not clear what the reasons are. It’s now all 1 drive per LUN permanently at all sites and will stay that way.

As I mentioned this above, the initiator chops up large requests into multiple MTU sized requests. Anonymous trolling will be removed with prejudice.

No one uses asynchronous writes.

At the time you wrote your blog post, we were just commissioning the systems, so I read it with great interest and I worried. As soon as you guess a LUN number, you can start reading and writing its data.

Coraid storage appliances use the low-latency ATA-over-Ethernet ATA protocol to provide high-bandwidth data transfer between hosts and data on the network.

Anonymous 12 October, StarWind VTL is a backup storage solution designed to eliminate costly tape backup processes while meeting regulatory data archival and retention requirements using on-premises Virtual Tape Libraries with cloud and object storage tier.


It can be used to disklessly boot Windows through Vista 64 from an AoE clraid virtual vblade or real Coraid deviceor can be used as a general AoE access driver.

Which software are you using? I coraif definitely not consider it for mission-critical data center applications. The installer link will be sent to the e-mail address you specify. No authentication Can you imagine that? Copy a volume to an image. Include a small header releasing the patch as public domain in order to do that.
