To be simple I'd say iscsi is a way to access remote storage. Scsi is a well known method to access hard drives that many old tools can use so there isn't usually problems. Most systems simply use the iscsi like it was a scsi drive.

They can be used like adding in a new hard drive. As such they can even be used to boot from. Many OS's can be booted from iscsi too just like a real hard drive.
