openSUSE is a general purpose operating system built on top of the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported openSUSE Project and sponsored by SUSE. After Novell acquired SUSE Linux in January 2004, Novell decided to release the SUSE Linux Professional product as a 100% open source project.
LIO Unified Target has been the default block storage target from openSUSE version 12.1, which was released on 11/16/2011 (based on Linux kernel 3.1.0). The current version 12.1, however, requires in addition the targetcli user space shell to be installed from linux-iscsi.org.
The Open-iSCSI Initiator comes pre-installed on CentOS 5.
- Fedora, community-supported Project, sponsored by Red Hat
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), the commercial distribution on which CentOS is based
- Scientific Linux, another distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux which has RHEL6 clone
