[Openstack-operators] Using a SAN for nova-volume & KVM

We are architecting our system for KVM (as it is the best hypervisor for
your money for HA networking) and a SAN for HA nova-volumes. The only
reference to being able to use a SAN is with XenServer as the hypervisor.
I have no problem giving a server permission to create luns (or
pre-creating them if I have to) for now. I want to make sure I can point
all the stuff to the SAN instead of doing some half-hearted attempt by
using a box as a proxy.
Our san is an EQL so iSCSI is easy. Also, we run our "san" net on
a separate 10Gbe set of interfaces (all the servers have connectivity into
the SAN layer).
