I think iSCSI is easier to implement and is certainly fast, but I'm unclear
about the number of iSCSI clients that can access a volume (iSCSI target) at
the same time. So, I use it with only one client at a time.

Has anyone here ran performance comparisons between NFS and iSCSI when using
network storage for KVM based guests. Also which have people found to be
easier for managing live migrates etc.
