|Not that I know of. I usually go out of my way to name them explicitly (i.e. GNBD, AoE, NBD).|

Yes, this is another big area that needs to get looked into. Network block device is so new (at least on Linux) that it requires some fine-tuning. If folks have working experiences and willing to share, we would be very happy to learn from them.
Just to be clear, the Coraid uses ATA-over-Ethernet. AoE is a block device that utilizes the network, but it is distinct from the Network Block Device (NBD).
This is clear - somehow I always use "network block device" to describe the device that provides block device service via network (e.g. GFS's GNBD)? Is there a general (and agreed-on) term to describe this type of devices in Linux ?
