the interface IStorageIteration says:

Note that this is a future API. Some storages now provide an
approximation of this.
ZODB.FileStorage.FileStorage is the only class in the current ZODB
code that implements this.
I'm a little surprised.
Also, this code isn't ZEO-compatible (apart from the fact that
ClientStorage doesn't implement the interface).
Are there any plans to complete this feature?
I would like to see this widely implemented. It is extremely useful.
In practice, even when using ZEO, it is easy to use the file storage
behind the ZEO.
Note, though, that it is more useful to use
ZODB.FileStorage.FileStorge.FileIterator directly as it doesn't
require creating a a file-storage instance.
(BTW, the module arrangement is such that you can't access the
ZODB.FileStorage.FileStorge module directly as it gets replaced by the
class. You have to dig it out of sys.module. :( )
We'd like to be able to iterate over transactions and their records
through ZEO and we'd be happy to contribute (in the next days) so
