Yes, QuantaStor supports both NFS and iSCSI so you can use it as a datastore. In the product NFS exports are called 'Network Shares', and the iSCSI disks are Storage Volumes.

Note that for disks to show up under XenServer or VMware virtual machines you need to make sure that the /etc/quantastor.conf has the allow_unident setting set to 1. This is because XenServer and VMware to not respond to SCSI inquiry requests so the devices are not uniquely identifiable. We'll be changing the default behavior in 1.5 to automatically discover these devices and you'll need to use a hide_unident to hide unidentifiable devices.

Another note on VMWare and general installation from ISO, the 1.4.1 version requires internet access to install, version 1.5 which is coming out next week no longer requires any network access to complete the installation.

There is some new documentation available on how to create a QuantaStor virtual appliance by installing from ISO. There are a number of configuration settings so we've documented each of the create virtual machine wizard steps here.
