SANs are one way,

Agreed, if you include fast interconects like SAS and exclude the network[1] requirement of SANs.

sharding/distribution across multiple nodes another.

I disagree, for the sam reason that doing so with iSCSI over ethernet isn't: too much added latency.

Infiniband may help, but I have yet to try it empirically.

[1] Switching/routing, multiple initiators, distances longer than a few dozen meters.
