Name        : nbdkit
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 1.1.7
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : https://github.com/libguestfs/nbdkit
Summary     : NBD server
Description :
NBD is a protocol for accessing block devices (hard disks and
disk-like things) over the network.

'nbdkit' is a toolkit for creating NBD servers.

The key features are:

* Multithreaded NBD server written in C with good performance.

* Well-documented, simple plugin API with a stable ABI guarantee.
  Allows you to export "unconventional" block devices easily.

* Liberal license (BSD) allows nbdkit to be linked to proprietary
  libraries or included in proprietary code.

You probably want to install one of more plugins (nbdkit-plugin-*).

To develop plugins, install the nbdkit-devel package and start by
reading the nbdkit(1) and nbdkit-plugin(3) manual pages.
