  • You will provide large amounts of storage to a virtual host
  • No need to add drives to the host itself - Easy plug and play
  • Will not sacrifice performance
  • Can use existing network equipment
  • No need to learn fiber SAN topology configuration


There are 2 ways to use iSCSI in a virtualized environment to free-up server space. It can be used as a storage for virtual host or as storage for an individual virtual machine.
