VDDK is a horribly proprietary library that VMware has released to let you open VMDK files and access the disks of ESX servers. It has some NBD capability already, but that’s not stopped me from creating a VDDK plugin for nbdkit so you can access VMware resources over NBD.
Make sure you read the README.VDDK file first …
