The Microsoft iSCSI target enables you to turn Windows into an iSCSI storage platform. This can provide economic storage, or give you an iSCSI gateway into a different type of storage. It’s a free download right now, and will be built into Windows Server 8.
Now for the question:
If you could have it, would you use SMI-S in the Microsoft iSCSI target in a production scenario? I am not talking about labs, or demos, or proof of concept for VMM 2012. I am talking about production use of SMI-S and the Microsoft iSCSI target.
If you do have a case then please let me know. I’ll need specifics – customer, case, how it’ll be used, etc. Who knows …
