In linux kernel since version 2.6.30 (release Date: 2009-06-09)  
DST is a network block device storage, which can be used to organize
exported storage on the remote nodes into the local block device.

DST works on top of any network media and protocol; it is just a matter
of configuration utility to understand the correct addresses. The most
common example is TCP over IP, which allows to pass through firewalls and
create remote backup storage in a different datacenter. DST requires
single port to be enabled on the exporting node and outgoing connections
on the local node.

DST works with in-kernel client and server, which improves performance by
eliminating unneded data copies and by not depending on the version
of the external IO components. It requires userspace configuration utility

DST uses transaction model, when each store has to be explicitly acked
from the remote node to be considered as successfully written. There
may be lots of in-flight transactions. When remote host does not ack
the transaction it will be resent predefined number of times with specified
timeouts between them. All those parameters are configurable. Transactions
are marked as failed after all resends complete unsuccessfully; having
long enough resend timeout and/or large number of resends allows not to
return error to the higher (FS usually) layer in case of short network
problems or remote node outages. In case of network RAID setup this means
that storage will not degrade until transactions are marked as failed, and
thus will not force checksum recalculation and data rebuild. In case of
connection failure DST will try to reconnect to the remote node automatically.
DST sends ping commands at idle time to detect if remote node is alive.

Because of transactional model it is possible to use zero-copy sending
without worry of data corruption (which in turn could be detected by the
strong checksums though).

DST may fully encrypt the data channel in case of untrusted channel and implement
strong checksum of the transferred data. It is possible to configure algorithms
and crypto keys; they should match on both sides of the network channel.
Crypto processing does not introduce noticeble performance overhead, since DST
uses configurable pool of threads to perform crypto processing.

DST utilizes memory pool model of all its transaction allocations (it is the
only additional allocation on the client) and server allocations (bio pools,
while pages are allocated from the slab).

At startup DST performs a simple negotiation with the export node to determine
access permissions and size of the exported storage. It can be extended if
new parameters should be autonegotiated.

DST carries block IO flags in the protocol, which allows to transparently implement
barriers and sync/flush operations. Those flags are used in the export node where
IO against the local storage is performed, which means that sync write will be sync
on the remote node too, which in turn improves data integrity and improved resistance
to errors and data corruption during power outages or storage damages.
