SoIP

Short for Storage over IP, SoIP technology refers to the merging of Fibre Channel technologies with IP-based technology to allow for accessing storage devices over TCP/IP networks. SoIP is the framework for storage area networking (SAN) using Internet Protocol (IP) networks to directly connect servers and storage. SoIP products are designed to support transparent interoperability of storage devices based on Fibre Channel, SCSI, and a new class of Gigabit Ethernet storage devices using iSCSI and iFCP. Existing Fibre Channel or SCSI devices, such servers with host bus adapters (HBAs) or storage subsystems, can be included in an SoIP storage network without modification. [Adapted from Nishan Systems]

This technology is being standardized under the IP Storage (ips) IETF Working Group. Also referred to as SoIP Framework.
