Hello !

"Big money" is very relative. If you already habe Gigabit Ethernet
Infrastructure for your servers at least you can use the software
implementation of the Enterprise ISCSI Target (IET)

If you don't want to configure and setup the software yourself you could
buy http://www.open-e.com/. This is a Flash-DOM that fits in the IDE
Port of a fileserver and turns this fileserver into an managable ISCSI
Target (it is Linux based). (Ranges from about 300$ to 800$)
