With the explosive growing of network information, there is a critical demand for mass information storage in e-Commerce. Traditional storage systems are created based on local area network and difficult to satisfy the requirements of newly emerged e-Commerce applications. The concept of IP-SWAN (Storage Wide Area Network) is proposed, which is a kind of storage network that can implement data access at block level globally through IP storage protocols. The architecture of IP-SWAN system based on iSCSI protocol is presented and the prototype of IP-SWAN is developed for performance evaluation. Experimental results show that the IP-SWAN system works with good performance. It offers a novel solution to mass information storage for enterprise e-Commerce applications.
