Task force on network storage architecture: Internet-attached storage devices

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The wide area connectivity that is Internet protocol (IP)'s strength opens up new functionality for peripherals. Cross-media bridging can be useful in heterogeneous computing environments, allowing transparent interoperation of different types of networks. IP makes use of the large existing body of research and development in routing, congestion control, flow control and reliability. This reduces R&D effort, as well as allowing quick integration of emerging features such as resource reservation and real-time protocols. It also alleviates the problem of committing to a protocol suite which is more or less tied to a choice of physical media providing a growth path unconstrained by the future development of a particular technology.
