Rethinking network monitoring and analysis system design The initial approach to developing network monitoring and analysis systems took one of the two paths: * Proprietary hardware and/or chip development to ensure high performance (still practiced by many enterprise network security vendors today) * System development based on standard "off-the-shelf" hardware, such as standard servers and standard Network Interface Cards (NICs) Proprietary hardware and chip development (even if the chip is a programmable FPGA or NPU) is a costly, high-risk approach with a need for constant investment and support to keep up with customer demands and growth in bandwidth.

IP-based storage works with standard network interface cards (NICs), eliminating the need for expensive host-based adapters (HBAs) required with Fibre Channel.
One interface is used to connect to the host bus, either initiator or target, and the other provides the capability to use standard Network Interface Controller (NIC) components * Cyclical Redundancy Check (CRC) engine: The iSCSI specification includes a special calculation to help assure data integrity.
