iSNS: Internet Storage Name Service
Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS) facilitates scalable configuration and management of iSCSI and Fibre Channel (FCP) storage devices in an IP network, by providing a set of services comparable to that available in Fibre Channel networks. iSNS thus allows an IP network to function at a comparable level of intelligence to a Fibre Channel fabric. iSNS allows the administrator to go beyond a simple device-by-device management model, where each storage device is manually and individually configured with its own list of known initiators and targets.
