What about iscsi-target?
You could transform a server in something like an ISCSI storage.
I use this solution in my office with a tree nodes cluster.

Oggetto: [Xen-users] Storage questions
I am looking to set up a Xen array of servers and I don't really know how to
set up the storage subsystem.
I have been looking for a little while and two options stand out for my setup.
The problem is rather simple, I need a pool of servers to access a shared
The first option is the easiest, NFS.
The second option is a little more complex in appearance. I won't be able to
have enough budget to buy a SAN so that is out of the question. What I could do
is have a storage server with a bunch of disks. I would GNBD (or some other
Network Block Driver) coupled with GFS. I am pretty new to these two concepts.
I know that GNBD cannot be used alone if I want more then a single server to
access the storage space.
What is more interesting with performance in mind ?
Thank you in advance for your input,
