FIBRE CHANNEL OR ISCSI HOSTS CONNECTED TO AN ISCSI TARGET IN AWS
In the following diagram, an AWS Storage Gateway and WANrockIT Node have been deployed in AWS EC2. The Storage Gateway’s attached cloud storage is connected to the Node over iSCSI.On-premise, a WANrockIT appliance has established a WAN link to the Node in AWS EC2, and presents the cloud storage to the on-prem LAN. Two hosts are connected to the on-prem Node over iSCSI and Fibre Channel, respectively.
Using the WANrockIT connection over the WAN link provides a higher line utilisation than connecting a host to the Storage Gateway directly, allowing for faster backups and restores.It also allows on-prem hosts to access the cloud storage using an existing Fibre Channel SAN, rather than having to switch over to an iSCSI-based SAN.
