The SAS, IB and FCoE targets, too.. SAS might be the most directly comparable to replace a traditional RAID controller in a host.. Most other HBA's already look enough like a RAID controller to potentially confuse the issue, and also run more directly head-to-head with the full-scale SAN model. Some machines have iSCSI boot in firmware for the motherboard NICs, so for those that would be a viable comparison. I'm talking primarily about sticker price and customer confusion here; of course the architectural block diagram is the same regardless of the PHY layer for scsi transport. -- Dan.
