“nbd-server” binary package in Ubuntu Hardy lpia
This package contains the server process for the Network Block
Device. The Network Block Device is a client/server protocol that
emulates a block device (like a hard disk, a floppy, a CD-ROM, ...)
over the network, thus giving the system the ability to swap over the
network, or to use raw network diskspace for other purposes.
Note, however, that it is not recommended to write to a single
networked block device from different clients simultaneously, since
that would probably result in data loss; if you want different
clients to use the same shared network resource, you don't need the
Network Block Device (which, basically, is a Disk Server protocol)
but something else, like Sun's Network File System (NFS), or CODA.
