I agree that "offload" seems the correct term there. Most of the
problem may be that English-speakers have become used to
mistranslations using "offload" when it should have been "download", as
well as it having a slight negative shirking connotation.

Maybe saying "offload some iSCSI work" instead of simply "offload
iSCSI" would be clearer, if there's space to do so, but it's minor IMO.

Hope that helps,
