Represented as the green network in the above diagram, the Storage Network is specialized for data traffic between the Cloud Cluster and the iSCSI Storage System. It is a very demanding network in terms of speed and latency. The traffic that will pass trough this network is data of block storage.
This kind of traffic is frequent and can be massive. The overall impact on the performance of the system can be high. Abiquo recommends that a specific network for Storage is set up to avoid Quality of Service issues.
Abiquo recommends a 10GbE backbone for storage in very demanding platforms.
