One big advantage of SANs is that local storage is avoided and storage
management is simplified. Most importantly, nodes on which VMs run
become like non-fixed resources. Domains can be chucked out from a
node to take it down for maintenance, for example. There would be no
issues when nodes are added. And with Avahi, life feels good. :-)

But when a node goes away suddenly, the application is left high and
dry at a point where it was making a call to the remote node. I
understand it is a TCP issue. But there must be a way to reach a
middle path. I removed the cable for a good 15 mins and still the call
remained blocked. The request never timed out at all. I am just
worried about this bit a lot.
