Debian is a computer operating system composed of software packages released as free and open source software primarily under the GNU General Public License along with other free software licenses. Debian GNU/Linux, which includes the Linux kernel and GNU OS tools, is a popular and influential GNU/Linux distribution. It is distributed with access to repositories containing thousands of software packages ready for installation and use. Debian is known for relatively strict adherence to the Unix and free software philosophies as well as using collaborative software development and testing processes. Debian can be used on a variety of hardware, from NAS/SAN devices to phones, laptops, desktops and servers. It focuses on stability and security and is used as a base for many other distributions.
LinuxIO has been the default block storage target from Debian 'wheezy' (freeze: June 2012). The user space shell targetcli can be installed as follows:
su -c 'apt-get install targetcli'
