iSCSI Storage on Cisco HyperFlex
The next release of Cisco HyperFlex Data Platform will introduce iSCSI block storage to complement the existing NFS file protocol that customers have grown to love. Block storage will enable customers to run clustered workloads with shared disks that currently cannot be hosted on HyperFlex. We were able to test a beta release of the software 4.5(1a) at the ATC for functionality and usability. Additionally, we want to give you an early look at enabling iSCSI and creating storage objects!
Starting the beta installation, we expect the setup of iSCSI to be simple and straight forward. Since iSCSI is configured on a cluster after the cluster is operational, setup is streamlined and can be performed from HyperFlex Connect.
We take you through a step-by-step process of our configuration and testing. If you would like to see these details click on the ATC Insight Section.
**Note that UI and command-line options may change with the release of the final product (currently scheduled for late December 2020).
