Technology Leadership
Coraid developed the ATA-over-Ethernet (AoE) networked storage protocol and made it open source in 2003. AoE is a simple way to move disk storage out of your servers and onto an Ethernet storage network. With AoE, disk read/write requests are placed directly into Ethernet frames/packets. AoE packets don’t need TCP/IP so they are easy to process.

EtherDrive storage is a fast and simple alternative to iSCSI and Fibre Channel SAN technologies. Servers discover and mount EtherDrive by using a low cost Host Bus Adapter (HBA) and software driver. The HBA driver presents an EtherDrive system to the host OS as a local SCSI disk drive.
