[OpenIndiana-discuss] Making an iSCSI target redundant

I am trying to set up a storage system which is going to expose it's
storage through iSCSI. The storage system is consisting of two storage
nodes connected to SAS switches which then are connected to SAS JBOD
arrays containing the disks which will hold the data.

Everything is up and running in my setup now, except redundancy on the
storage node part. I don't know how to get around to set up redundancy
of the iSCSI targets in case one of the storage nodes goes down, or is
taken out for maintenance. Can anybody help me out here? Are there any
best practices or software which can handle this?

I have had a look at Nexenta, but it seems expensive considering I
only am missing the redundancy of the storage nodes.
