For the instances(Nova Ephemeral Storage) you can mount /var/lib/nova/instances on your network storage. I've set it up with NFS, you would just setup NFS to mount @ /var/lib/nova/instances.

For Cinder you'll need to modify the cinder.conf file and specify which back-end you want to use. The driver will depend on the storage device you are using. If it is NFS then you can specify NFS then create a new file with the NFS locations.
