The open-source SCST project continues to be developed as an alternative SCSI target stack for the Linux kernel. This out-of-tree kernel code is preparing for its next release.

Vladislav Bolkhovitin announced that the SCST 3.2 release is coming soon. "SCST is alternative SCSI target stack for Linux. SCST allows creation of sophisticated storage devices, which can provide advanced functionality, like replication, thin provisioning, deduplication, high availability, automatic backup, etc. Majority of recently developed SAN appliances, especially higher end ones, are SCST based. It might well be that your favorite storage appliance running SCST in the firmware."

If you are unfamiliar with SCST, see their SourceForge page for much more information on the project.
