Definition: HyperSCSI

A protocol for transferring data directly from a SCSI storage device directly over the network. HyperSCSI allows a storage area network (SAN) to be economically constructed within a LAN subnet. HyperSCSI differs from iSCSI, which uses the higher-layer IP protocol, and although iSCSI takes more overhead, data can be routed across networks. See SCSI, SAN and AoE.
