    For shared storage, just use any network method that you would use between 2 physical systems. If that is CIFS or NFS, then use those. If you want sftp, Windows has filezilla or WinSCP. These all...

    Since you didn't specify a specific person and we can't read your mind, I'll answer too.

    x2go is 2-3x faster than VNC and can be easily tuned for lower bandwidth connections.
    If you have lots of bandwidth, use SPICE and qxl video drivers.
