While we're suggesting myriad ways to present block devices over the
network, take a quick squiz at ATA over Ethernet -- I was pleasantly amazed
at how trivial it was to get working with the aoe kernel module and
aoe-tools (on the client) and vblade (on the server). Quite scary,
actually, and you can do regular files as block devices too, if you want.
