IP Storage Isolation (Cope, Erl)

How can IP storage be secured while using the same communication layer and channel as other networking traffic?

IP Storage Isolation


Storage traffic needs to share the same underlying network infrastructure as network traffic.


Implement a security mechanism that manages the appropriate levels of isolation for cloud storage devices.


IP storage data can be protected from unauthorized users via a networking mechanism that is used to allocate a dedicated or virtually dedicated tunnel of traffic to IP storage.
