1. A non-transitory computer-readable storage media comprising instructions stored thereon, that, if executed by at least one processor, cause the at least one processor to:
generate an access control list indicating any host node that can access storage resources of one or more target systems, wherein the access control list includes information on one or more hosts provisioned to access storage resources managed by target systems and at least one of the target systems includes one or more physical or virtual subsystems;
receive a request from a requesting host node for storage resources that the requesting host node is permitted to access;
provide host discovery information, based on the access control list, to the requesting host node indicating the storage resources, including one or more virtual subsystems, that the requesting host node is permitted to access; and
provide connection information, based on the access control list, to the requesting host node to connect to the at least one of the target systems.
