Storage over IP (SoIP)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
Storage over IP or SoIP is a technology for accessing storage devices over TCP/IP networks. Storage becomes accessible to users directly across the network, and much of the overhead imposed by server and operating system intervention is removed to improve performance. This terminology is a trademark to Nishan Systems. Since the IETF is working to standardize similar storage access technologies, it chose to use the name "IP Storage" for its Working Group and related technology. Refer to "IP Storage" for more information.
