SCST is an advanced SCSI target software stack for Linux systems. The SCST software allows to transform a commodity server into a high-end Storage Area Network (SAN). SCST supports multiple SCSI protocols (iSCSI, FC, FCoE, SRP, iSER, ...), multiple local storage interfaces (SCSI pass-through, block I/O and file I/O) and also storage drivers implemented in user-space via the scst_user driver. It is the basis of several other open source projects, e.g. Openfiler and Enterprise Storage OS. During this talk it will be explained why this project is useful, how to use it and which new features have been added recently. Additionally, more information will be provided about support in SCST for scsi-mq and also about the initiative to evolve towards a single Linux SCSI target stack.
