Is anyone aware of a project (now that LinuxDisk is gone..) that has the
potential to turn a Linux box into one of these?
I'd like to have a Linux machine running as a "SAN appliance" with a
heterogenous mix of servers (with FC cards) booting from "virtual" slices of
one big array.
I'm envisioning a "roll your own" version of this Winchester Flaskdisk
product:
