The slides that I used for my talk "Build your own SAN!" at the rootconf in Bangalore on May 26, 2012.

There is an accompanying video that I'll link to once the rootconf organizers have the videos ready.

I also learned a bit about what else I should cover. I'll prepare another presentation + video and shall upload the link to that too.
