Roger T Thorpe, Erasmo Brenes, Stephen O Neil, Alec Shen: Storage controller redundancy using bi-directional reflective memory channel. Istor Networks, Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear, September 6, 2005: US06941396 (63 worldwide citation)

A bi-directional reflective memory channel between a pair of storage controllers is used to maintain a mirrored copy of each storage controller's native buffer contents within the buffer of the other storage controller. To maintain such mirrored copies, buffer write operations that fall within a ref ...

Disclosed is a system and methods for acceleration of the TCP/IP and the iSCSI protocols. The methods may be adapted to a wide variety of systems and applications that employ communications protocols including TCP, with or without iSCSI. Using a hardware-based acceleration approach, common case netw ...

Jean Kodama, Michael Morrison: Systems and methods of directly placing data in an iSCSI storage device. iStor Networks, Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear, March 31, 2009: US07512663 (10 worldwide citation)

Mechanisms and processes for directly storing data into the memory of a storage device using the iSCSI protocol are described. One mechanism includes a transmitting device that encodes data to be stored in an iSCSI protocol data unit. Also encoded is buffer locational data that indicates, directly o ...
