Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Fedora 10 (Initiator And Target)
Posted on: 06/02/2009 02:16 PM

Howtoforge posted a guide about setting up ATA over Ethernet on Fedora 10

This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Fedora 10. AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.
