The idea behind this project is to replace applications which no longer integrate properly outside of a particular environment (this is the case for a growing number of GNOME applications) and to give our desktop environments the same set of core applications, so that each change, each new feature being developed, each little improvement made in one of them will benefit not just one environment, but all of them.

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) on CentOS 7 (Initiator and Target)

Thursday 30th of June 2016 07:21:07 PM
This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running CentOS 7.

"Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.
