Technologies that shape the Networked Storage
From the protocols point of view, there are several protocols that are used for networked storage technology:
NFS (Network File System)
A protocol that allows a user to access files on a remote server as if they were stored locally.
CIFS (Common Internet File System)
A protocol that allows file and printer sharing between computers running Microsoft Windows and other operating systems.
FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet)
A protocol that enables Fibre Channel traffic to be carried over Ethernet networks.
NVMe-oF (NVMe over Fabrics)
A protocol that enables NVMe storage devices to be used over a network.
