Improve security and performance

It's good practice to have a dedicated iSCSI network.

Accessing your Openfiler SAN from anywhere on your network may not be desirable for security reasons and there are performance advantages in separating the network traffic from the iSCSI traffic.

To achieve this all you need is a dedicated switch, and a dedicated NIC on each of your iSCSI initiator servers.
