Network Block Device protocol - client
Network Block Device (NBD) is a client/server protocol that emulates a block device (such as a hard disk, a floppy, or a CD-ROM) over the network, thus giving the system the ability to swap over the network, or to use raw network disk space for other purposes.
However, writing to one Network Block Device from different clients simultaneously is not recommended, and would probably result in data loss. If you want multiple clients to share a remote resource, use a network file system such as NFS or Coda.
This package provides the client binary for NBD.
