Don't know if this helps but we have been using OpenFiler for that. You
just create a new virtualmachine with the amount of storage you want to
share. You install OpenFiler on top of it. Then, you can partition That
space using OpenFiler and you can share it using whatever protocol you

Hope this helps.
