An open source, high performance, block-level storage platform.
ESOS (Enterprise Storage OS) is a Linux distribution of sorts that provides block-level storage targets. Its based on the Linux kernel and the SCST project. It also provides all of the necessary utilities/tools to configure your back-end storage devices (eg, hardware RAID controllers, Logical Volume Management, Linux software RAID, etc.). A text user interface (TUI) is also included for storage provisioning and system management tasks.
ESOS has been actively developed since January 2012, and its feature set continues to grow. Many people find ESOS to be quite stable and useful. Many use ESOS in production / live environments.
