Hi everyone,

I have this pet project, playing with the Lustre Cluster FS. Is there anything 
similar to this that would run with FreeBSD as the host? ( Clients supported 
would HAVE to be linux,freebsd, Win32, OSX, ideally over standard protocols 
with no need for special driver).

I seem to remember that ggate,  in the GEOM stack, allows for storage over 
different nodes, but reading about ggate i am not sure it provides what I'm 
after : 

 - storage over a number of nodes (few or large number).
 - abstract view of the storage from the client's point of view ( 1 TB storage, 
doesnt matter how this is setup).
 - dynamic sizing : add servers, storage grows.
 - resilience to node loss.
