I still think this is a non sense and is very different from Andrew
>From my understanding you what to use sheepdog nodes ad front-end, and
something like a nas/san/iscsi as back-end.
In such case, sheepdog is not what you are looking for.

You may want to do the opposite: sheepdog nodes ad back-end (iscsi
multipath or connecting directly by qemu) and use other powerful
server ad front-end.

What you ask is that:
e.g. a nas export a folder by nfs.
Each nod mount this folder in /media/nas
Each node writes data in a subfolder

Each node run sheep in its own directory
  sheep -n /media/nas/node1
  sheep -n /media/nas/node/node2
  sheep -n /media/nas/nodeN
