Development is moving along pretty quickly for the iSER project. We are churning out weekly builds for development for COMSTAR iSCSI and iSER.
If you are interested in either of these things now is a good time to dig in. Sign up for the mailing list and start to test things out. It doesn't take much to set up a system to play with iSCSI, but for iSER you will need some special equipment.
Come on down and join in the fun.

Yesterday I gave a presentation at Community One on Storage. Sun has just recently announced it's OpenStorage Initiative. Part of that technology is a project called COMSTAR. The presentation I did talked through the way to create a multiprotocol storage device. This used ZFS to export things using NFS and CIFS, but to also use COMSTAR to export over fiber channel. In the future COMSTAR will support iSCSI, iSER, FCoE and SAS. It is a really unique technology that will challenge the current market of disk arrays.
Update: you can see a video of this presentation.
