iSCSI is an amazing technology that allows users to mount a volume to a host computer and have it control the volume as a local drive. You can even set the computer up to boot from the iSCSI share, just like a SAN.

QNAP's iSCSI configuration delivers some of the best performance in the business. The cache-accelerated volume manages to shave a few seconds off of each test that you may use at home. Even without the cache enabled, QNAP's iSCSI runs circles around the other systems.
