The advent of the Internet SCSI standard holds the potential for reducing cost of ownership of SANs. The iSCSI standard marries IP, SCSI, and Gigabit Ethernet technologies to provide a high-speed data path that removes many of the bottlenecks of traditional TCP/IP data transfers. Even though SANs are relatively new technology, they have become widely used. The 2003 Computer Economics Information Systems Spending survey indicates that half of IT sites either are using or implementing SANs.
