The Linux SCSI Target Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

A number of platforms (systems and CPU architectures) support the LinuxIO and Core-iSCSI. This page provides an overview over the more interesting ones.

Contents

Target

May 2004: First export of external USB HDD on the PS2.
iSCSI HD media over IPv6 from LIO on the PS3.

Linksys OpenWRT

The OpenWRT project runs Linux 2.4.30 on Linksys WRT350N Wireless-N gigabit router. It includes a number of Broadcom MIPS based access points running Linux/MIPS.

The Linksys WRT350N also got an experimental LIO backport. Together with its Core-iSCSI port, it can be used as an iSCSI target export and a storage aggregator for external USB disks and DVD-ROM devices.

Neuros OSD

The Neuros OSD PVR (personal video recorder/player) uses LIO to serve as a jukebox for iSCSI media archives on the home network.

Raspberry Pi

The guys at Digitally Accurate ported LIO to the Raspberry Pi, which now allows Windows 7 to connect over Ethernet to a USB storage device configured as an iSCSI target.

Sony PlayStation

The Sony PlayStation 2 (Emotion Engine/MIPS) and PlayStation 3 (Cell/PPC) are running LIO.

Technologic TS-7800

The Technologic TS-7800 ARM9 development board has the following features:

The Marvell Orion 88F5182 is used in a number of NAS appliances, running this device with IP fabric services to USB, SATA, LVM.

Initiator

FIC Neo1973 with acces to HD and USB Flash storage on i386 LIO-VM and the Sony PlayStation 3.
iSCSI media access from Neuros OSD via remote control.
Nokia N800 with the first OCFS2 prototype.
OpenMoko media player accessing HD/DVDs/CDs from LIO over iSCSI/WiFi.

Apple

Mac OS X

Mac OS X can connect to LIO via the Small-Tree Initiator.

iPOD

The Apple iPOD is based on an ARM core. Datera has modified some models to run a 2.4.xx uclinux kernel, and ported Core-iSCSI to them, which allows them to access large external media libraries by iSCSI via IP over IEEE-1394 (FWIP).

Linksys OpenWRT

The OpenWRT project runs Linux 2.4.30 on Linksys WRT350N Wireless-N gigabit router. It includes a number of Broadcom MIPS based access points running Linux/MIPS.

The Linksys WRT350N got an experimental backport of Core-iSCSI. Together with LIO, it can be used as an iSCSI target export and a storage aggregator for external USB disks and DVD-ROM devices.

Motorola ROKR E2

The Motorola ROKR E2 was a novel and exciting Linux-based cellular phone platform from Motorola, ideally suited to drive iSCSI over GSM forward.

Nokia N Series Maemo

The Nokia Internet Tablets Nokia 770 and Nokia N800 are successfully running a port of LIO and OCFS2.

OpenMoko

OpenMoko FIC Neo1973 and Neo FreeRunner "open-source" moble devices can play back content from LIO, e.g. with media on the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 2.

Other

CDMA

Researchers at Korea University, Seoul where the first to successfully move IP storage packets over a CDMA network.[1]

Cisco MDS 9216i

Both Core-iSCSI and LIO have been ported to the Cisco MDS 9216i, so that it can be used as an "I/T Repeater" (i.e. a storage aggregator).

a780

Linux v2.4-MVL backport for Core-ISCSI, or Linux v2.6 using WWN+UI Infastructure.

HP/Compaq Ipaqs

Linux 2.4.xx kernel (PXA/Xscale): booting via Core-iSCSI backport to v2.4.

Nintendo DS

Linux 2.6 uclinux (ARM): iSCSI over 802.11b wireless (Accelerated media player is required to play over iSCSI).

Nintendo 64

Linux 2.4 uclinux (MIPS R4300): diskless boot Linux/iSCSI (MMU-less Linux needs to boot via machine emulator or hardware mod).

Nintendo Gamecube

Linux 2.6.17 (PowerPC) 10/100 Mbit (build): protyope of diskless gamecube booting .DOL ramdisk images. The BBA is fast enough to watch a 10 Mbit/s DVD movie!

Nintendo Wii

Linux 2.6 kernel (PowerPC): booting Wii via iSCSI.

One Laptop per Child (OLPC)

The OLPC is based on AMD Geode (OLPC website) (Fedora OLPC wiki): Core-iSCSI allows diskless iSCSI boot (linux-bios for PXE boot).

Sega Dreamcast

Linux 2.6 kernel mainline (SuperH): diskless boot across Broadband Adapter or Serial I/O, then mount iso9660 and UDF ROMs across Ethernet.

Sony PSP

Linux 2.4.xx uclinux (MIPS R4000): boot diskless over wireless or serial with Core-iSCSI v2.4.

Microsoft Xbox

Linux 2.6 kernel (x86): booting diskless via Core-iSCSI using ELF images.
