HyperSCSI is a new storage protocol designed for the transfer of SCSI data and commands over networks. It runs on Ethernet-based networks, but does not use TCP/IP as a foundation for communications. While this may run counter to convention, it has allowed HyperSCSI to achieve high throughput without the need for complex and expensive hardware add-ons. It supports IDE and SCSI hard disk drives, optical, tape, and even removable USB drives. It is compatible with Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet (with and without Jumbo frames), and 802.11b wireless LANs.
