Cluster File System
« on: October 28, 2011, 10:41:34 am »
Hi

Has anyone got any recommendations for a high performance replacement to NFS which will preferably run in VMware guests?

Thanks!

That all depends on whether you want a cluster filesystem, or just a network filesystem. (like NFS)

If it's the latter, take a look at "Gluster".

If it's the former, unless you have a very large IT department and lots of help, forget it and look at "Gluster".

(I'm assuming here you've looked at the previous post re; OCFS2 and discounted it ..)
