ABSTRACT
<p>In a computer system, a storage interface defines both the boundaries between storage devices--such as hard drives, tape drives, or similar media--and how those dissimilar computing resources engage one another to work as a coherent system. Storage interfaces have been a necessary component of computer systems since computing's inception.</p><p>Today's storage interface arena consists of diverse industry standards combined with R&D investments from major industry players who continue to aid in the evolution of these numerous technologies. Although SCSI--the Small Computer Systems Interface--is probably the most pivotal standard in use today, other crucial storage protocols include Fibre Channel, IEEE 1394, Serial ATA, and iSCSI.</p>
