Difference between the inband management and out-of-band management

The differences of these two management modes lie in:
Reliability: In out-of-band mode, when the service link is faulty, you can still log in to and manage the storage device by using the management link.
Management mode: In out-of-band mode, either the ISM or CLI can be used for management. In inband mode, only the ISM can be used.
Networking: In inband mode, management data and service data share the same link. Therefore, the number of network cables is reduced.
Functions: In inband mode, the application server collaborates with the storage device. In some cases, the performance of the storage device is enhanced.
