Information technology - Storage management - Part 7: Host elements
This version of the Host-based Storage portion of the Storage Management Technical Specification includes autonomous profiles:
- "The Host Discovered Resources Profile
This profile defines the model for the storage devices presented to an operating system running on a host computer system. In addition, this profile describes the map of storage associated to a host-computer system that a client application can discover.
- "The Fibre Channel HBA Profile
This profile defines the model and functions of a Fibre Channel HBA that exports block storage to a host computer system from a SAN device (Fibre Channel switch, array, tape library, etc.).
- iSCSI Initiator Profile
This profile defines the model and functions necessary to manage an iSCSI initiator.
Component profiles used by autonomous profiles to describe aspects of host-based storage elements and services. The component profiles defined in this version of the specification include:
- Host Hardware RAID Controller Profile
This profile defines the model and functions of a host-based RAID controller that exports block storage to a host computer system from locally attached storage devices (internal hard drives, JBODs, etc.)
- Storage HBA Profile
This profile defines the model and functions of a SAS, SATA, SPI, or Fibre Channel HBA that exports storage to a host computer system from a SAN device (Fibre Channel switch, array, tape library, etc.).
- Disk Partition Profile
The Disk Partition profile models partition (or slice) configuration services provided by operating systems on some platforms.
- SB Multipath Management Profile
The SB Multipath Management Profile models paths (connections between host controllers and device ports) for environments supporting the SB (Single Byte) command protocol.
- SCSI Multipath Management Profile
The SCSI Multipath Management profile models paths (connections between host controllers, device ports, and logical units) for environments supporting the SCSI command protocol.
