ATA over Ethernet (AoE) is a network protocol developed by the Brantley Coile Company, designed for simple, high-performance access of SATA storage devices over Ethernet networks. It is used to build storage area networks (SANs) with low-cost, standard technologies.

Prequisites to AOE

To use AOE you need the AUR packages vbladeAUR and aoetoolsAUR.

# ip set link eth0 up
Note: AOE is working without IP Adress

Create a Disk with dd:

# dd if=/dev/zero of=vblade0 count=1 bs=1M

Start Vblade

# vblade 1 1 eth0 vblade0 
Note: You can use the vbladed Daemon instead of vblade

Now a Client should be able to see the ATA-Drive

Testing Local

To test the setup localy you have to assign vblade to lo

# modprobe aoe
# vblade 1 1 lo vblade0 &
# aoe-interfaces eth0
# aoe-discover
# aoe-stat
     e1.1         0.001GB   eth0 up

Using AOE

# modprobe aoe
# aoe-interfaces eth0
# aoe-discover
# aoe-stat
    e1.1         0.001GB   eth0 up


Now the device can be used as a normal device. It will also show up in fdisk! So first make a file system:

# mkfs.ext4 /dev/ethered/e1.1
# mkdir /mnt/e1.1
# mount /dev/etherd/e1.1 /mnt/e1.1
