Feature-rich and fast SCSI target with CTL and ZFS

Three years ago FreeBSD got new subsystem called CTL (CAM Target Layer), providing SCSI target device emulation at kernel level. It allowed to bring FibreChannel target support in FreeBSD to significantly new level, and later was integrated with the new iSCSI stack.

This talk will describe CTL internal organization, improvements done during the last year, results and perspectives. It will include overview of modern SCSI extensions, known as VMWare VAAI and Microsoft ODX, and their CTL implementation.
