globalSAN – The iSCSI Initiator for macOS/OS X

The globalSAN® iSCSI Initiator enables Mac computers to connect to practically any iSCSI storage target, using standard GbE or 10GbE hardware.

iSCSI is a network protocol standard that enables the transport of block-level I/O over TCP/IP. One major advantage of iSCSI is that it can work over your existing Ethernet infrastructure. Depending on the speed of your network, an iSCSI-based storage area network (SAN) can rival the performance of a Fibre Channel SAN, and can cost far less to implement.

In an iSCSI SAN, an initiator is needed on each computer that requires access to the networked storage. An initiator is not included with the purchase of a Mac, so we created globalSAN to bring iSCSI to your Mac.
