I am setting up a video editing / encoding workstation based on a mac mini and a freenas box for mass storage. We plan to use iSCSI to share the disk with the mac and had planned on using GlobalSAN's iSCSI initiator as it had worked in testing and was free. Unfortunately, version 5 isn't free so we are back to the drawing board. Or at least now that we have to pay we'd like to make sure we buy the right one.
Anyhow, we've identified a two options:
a) GlobalSAN v5.0
b) Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator
In addition, I wonder of some open source iSCSI initiators might work since it is BSD under the hood. But I couldn't find a clear answer.
So, for what is essentially a single-user SAN, what iSCSI initiator would use on OSX 10.7?
