    Including the free grab & burn.

    Whats is it you may ask?

    StarPort creates a virtual DVD-ROM drive locally to watch movies in a home theatre and fully implements iSCSI and ATA-over-Ethernet client side protocols enabling you to connect to remote storage appliances such as disk arrays, tape drives, DVD-ROM image libraries and so on.

    Today’s package includes both StarPort Professional and Grab&Burn (free CD/DVD/Blu-Ray/HD-DVD recording/grabbing tool). Grab&Burn supports all types of optical storage media (including CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, BD-R/RE, HD-DVD-R/RW and DVD-RAM) and supports a wide variety of CD/DVD/Blu-Ray/HD-DVD burning

    StarPort Key Features
    • DVD-ROM drive emulation built-in. Allows mounting existing DVD-ROM ISO and MDS images as DVD-ROM drives. This prevents original DVD-ROM media from physical damage or loss, allows you to use client machines without optical drives and allows storing DVD backup data on a single server.
    • Local RAM disk emulation provide extremely high performance for I/O critical applications.
    • SCSI device emulation. Connects over IP network and maps locally any remote iSCSI device: hard disks and disk array, CD/DVD/Blu-Ray/HD-DVD burners, tape drives and autoloader libraries, media changers, etc.
    • Complete iSCSI and AoE (ATA-over-Ethernet) client-side protocols support.
    • Supports huge disks (above 2 TB in size) for both iSCSI and ATA-over-Ethernet configurations.
    • Early mounting of persistent devices (before the user logs in).
    • Native 32-bit and 64-bit binaries for x86 and x64 machines.
    • iSNS integration for easy iSCSI targets look-up.
    • IPv4 and IPv6 support out-of-box.
    • CHAP authentication provides additional security.
    • IPsec encryption for secure tunneling of private data over insecure WAN IP connections. The entire session content is encrypted. Your company critical data would remain encrypted during replication from the main site to remote sites.
    • Fully conforms to the latest iSCSI Standard 1.0 (former Draft 20).

    That sounds really cool, especially for free. Though now I think about it, I don't think I would ever use it :)

    Good find though!
